VOLUME XXI— NUMBER 7 


OCTOBER 31, 1959 



The exciting Bo Diddley, a veteran who played a major role in the 
development of rock and roll in its early stages, is once again high on 
the charts. His “Crackin’ Up” single was a big money maker earlier in 
the year and his follow-up “Say Man” looks like his biggest to date. 
Bo has also developed into one of the Chess Corp.’s best selling album 
artists, according to the company’s execs, Len Chess, Phil Chess and Max 
Cooperstein. His “Go Bo Diddley” Checker package is currently one of 
the nation’s top LP’s and another album titled “Bo Diddley” is consistently 

a strong seller.

Record Reviews 


A PICK B+ EXCELLENT 8 VERY GOOD C+ GOOD C FAIR D MEDIOCRE 

“Only those records best suited for commercial use are reviewed by THE CASH BOX” 



“FRIENDLY WORLD” (2:00) “HOUND DOG MAN” (2:10) 

[Robbins — Feist & Miller-Darby] [Fabulous BMI — Pomus, Shuman] 

FABIAN (Chancellor 1044) 

# The teen favorite can cash-in strong on both ends here, items from 
his initial flick, “Hound Dog Man.” A tender, warm-beat note is struck 
on “Friendly World,” while the pic titler finds Fabian in a more familiar 
belting role. “Come And Get Me” is completing a solid chart-run for 
the artist. 



“MARINA” (2:43) [Class BMI— Granata] 

“ADONIS” (2:39) [Joy ASCAP— Warren, Goehring] 

JACKY NOGUEZ (Jamie 1137) 

“MARINA” (2:39) [Class BMI— Granata] 

“CERASELLA (Canzone Allegra)” (2:32) 

[Ed Musical Mascotte ASCAP — Sciorilli, Pirro, Bonagura] 

WILLY ALBERTI (London 1888) 

“MARINA” (2:26) [Maxwell BMI] 

“I’LL TAKE ROMANCE” (2:54) 

[Bourne ASCAP — Oakland, Hammerstein] 

TONY MARTIN (RCA Victor 7633) 

# Add three more contenders for “Marina” honors. The European hit 
receives a lively instrumental, sometimes chorus outing from Jamie’s 
Noguez, who won the recent “Ciao, Ciao Bambina” sales race. Songster 
Alberti and vet songster Martin do delectable readings on their sessions 
(both in Italian) for London and Victor, respectively. All are deft ver- 
sions of the opus. Noguez couples his “Marina” with a fine-sounding 
arrangement of “Adonis,” tune that received some attention a few 
months ago. Alberti’s underside is another upbeat, Italian-sung stand 
1 and Martin and the Shorty Rogers’ ork are exciting on the mainstay, 
i “I’ll Take Romance.” . 



BlllllllllllMlllllUlillllllllM 

ADVENTURERS 
(Capitol 4292) 

H “RIP VAN WINKLE” (2:18) 
®“T"[Moon Mist BMI — Brown] De- 
lightfully catchy number is present 
in a deliciously bright format. A 
group of Chipmunk-like voices chant 
against a contagious shuffle beat. 
Might be a novelty winner. 

I® “TRAIL BLAZER” (2:20) [Moon 
O T Mist BMI — Brown] Big beat fans 
solidly get what they want here. 
Guitars and sax provide a rock holi- 
day. Can get places, too. 


RANDY SPARKS 
(Verve 10191) 

B “BIRMINGHAM TRAIN” (2:50) 
[Sparrow ASCAP — Sparks] In- 
fectious light upbeat sound to this 
folk-type outing. Songster Sparks, 
who does a fine warble could have an 
active deck here. 

B “A GIRL LIKE YOU” (2:37) 
[Holiday, Laine, Garrett, Sparks] 
Sensitive stand on another folk-type 
opus. Touching side. 


JIM SOLLEY & LUBOCS 
(Deb 8791) 

p, “JOHNNY GOODLUCK” (2:30) 
Or [Dundee BMI • — - Solley] Good- 
sounding tale about a boy who has 
“Johnny Goodluck” as a nickname, 
but whose fate, at an early age, is 
tragic. Intriguing beat backs the fine 
Solley warble. To be watched. 

fs , “YES I DO” (2:10) [Dundee 
wt BMI — Solley, Terrell] Senti- 
mental date gets another striking- 
sound from the instrumentalists. 


BENNY GOODMAN QUINTET/ 
ORCH. 

(Chess 1742) 

B “YOU DO SOMETHING TO ME” 
(3:10) [Harms ASCAP — Porter] 
A fine new Goodman swinger on the 
standby. Goodman and pianist Russ 
Freeman share the spotlight. 

B “MISSION TO MOSCOW” (2:40) 
[Regent BMI— Powell] The full 
Goodman ork produces this bright 
swing bon-bon. Both tracks come 
from a recently issued “Benny Good- 
man Rides Again” jlP. 


RONNIE SAVOY 
(Gone 5079) 

», “LOVE ME AS I LOVE YOU” 
[Marielle BMI — Elias, Reid, Kos- 
loff] Savoy touchingly surveys the 
affectionate theme. This tender per- 
formance could do it with exposure. 

B “OOH, WHAT A GIRL” [Mar- 
ielle BMI— Elias, Reid, Kosloff] 
It’s the jump route here and the kids 
will go for the sound. 


IIBMI* 

HERB HARDESTY 
(Mutual 1001) 

B “PERIDI STREET” (2:28) [El- 
liot ASCAP — Reichner, Hardesty] 
Interesting midle-beat rocker, with a , 
keyboard effectively playing it cook. 

A sound that could step-out. 

B “BEATIN’ AND BLOWIN’” , 
(2:10) [Elliot ASCAP — Reichner, j 
Hardesty] Boys do justice to the rock 
’n roll sound by providing- breezy, 
sound-wise work here. 


JAY RICHARDS 
(Hollywood 1100) 

B “ECHOES ON MY MIND” (2:33) 
[Kamar BMI — Willridge, Kim- 
ball] Effective country-styled wailing. 
Richards strikingly captures the wist- 
ful sentiment of the opus and receives 
worthy vocal-combo backing. 

B “LITTLE SHYREL” (2:17) [Ka- 
mar BMI — Richards, Willridge] 
In a driving mood, both songster and 
support put-out with excitement. 


DICK STABILE 
(Dot 15996) 

B “MACK THE KNIFE” (2:27) 
[Harms ASCAP— Weill, Brecht, 
Blitzstein] Smart swinging from the 
Stabile ork on Bobby Darin’s current 
smash vehicle. Plenty of bright sounds 
for the jocks to spin here. 

B “NOLA” (2:45) [Sam Fox AS- 
CAP — Arndt] The oldie — recently 
on the charts — gets a sparkling sax- 
led reading. More tasteful stuff for 
jocks. 


KALASANDRO 
(Warner Bros. 5103) 

B “THE BIG HURT” (2:10) [Music 
Productions ASCAP — Shanklin] 
Intriguing melody is worked in a 
colorful rock-a-cha way. Blend in- 
cludes sans lyrics voices, keyboard, 
strings and tambourine-like instru- 
ments. Grows-on-you. Could move. 

B “OUR LOVE’S NO ORDINARY 
THING” (2:11) [Music Produc- 
tions ASCAP — Shanklin] Colorful 
samba date somewhat resembling 
“Brazil.” Two fine jockey sides. 


SINA CONCERT BAND/ 

DK. EDVARD FORBES & MR. X 
(S.I.N.A. 507) 

j 

H “ALLEGRE MUCHACHO" 
(2:11) [Abel BMI — Spencer] The 
Sina Concert Band plays a pleasant- 
to-hear Latin arrangement. Sponsors 
of the deck is the Society For In- 
decency To Naked Animals (S.I.N.A.). 

C “A TRIP TO THE MOON” (2:59) 
[Abel BMI — Spencer] A German 
scientist interviews a hillbilly who is 
about to take-off for the moon. The 
dialogue wears thin after a short 
while.

The Cash Box 


Pick of the Week 


“DRUM PARTY” (2:19) [Travis BMI— Nelson, Podolor] 

“BIG NOISE FROM WINNETKA” (2:33) 

[Bregman, Vocco & Conn ASCAP— Baudic, Crosby, Rodin, Haggart] 

SANDY NELSON (Imperial 5630) 

• Nelson, leader of the crew that has “Teen Beat” high on the charts 
for Original Sound, makes a strong percussion appearance on “Drum 
Party.” Date puts a driving sound that could follow the “Teen Beat” 
route. Watch it. “Big Noise From Winnetka,” revived with tricky 
percussion-flute work, can also move way out. 


“LONG JOHN” (2:29) “T.A. BLUES” (2:29) 

[Gregmark BMI — Sharpe] [Gregmark BMI — Hazlewood] 

RAY SHARPE (Jamie 1138) 

# Ray Sharpe, whose fast-talkin’ gimmick helped make “Linda Lu” 
a favorite with the teensters, decks out what looks like two more top 
teen attractions. Tagged “Long John” and “T.A. (Teen Age) Blues” 
they’re two pile-drivers that Ray and a gal vocal combo belt out with 
solid sales authority. Can be a back-to-back click’er. 



RICHARD WOLFE 
(Kapp 306) 

B “UNTIL TOMORROW” (1:50) 
[Republic BMI — Kaye] Senti- 
mental oldie is recited in Billy 
Vaughn - like rock - a - ballad terms. 
Lead saxes are backed by a pounding- 
rock beat. Might make it. 

B “TUTUCHELLI” (2:09) [Gar- 
land ASCAP — Vine, Buggy, 
Magenta] Many listeners will be 
pleasantly reminded here of the years- 
back click, “Poor People Of Paris.” 
Wolfe is an A&R director at Kapp. 


BILLY RICE 
(Onda 109) 

f* “FOOUSH LOVE” (2:00) [Verna 
V » ASCAP — Patterson] A tearful 
beat-ballad session, with the OK plain- 
tive Rice vocal getting a particularly 
effective setting from the sax. 

C “SEVENTEEN LITTLE KISSES” 
(1:42) [Verna ASCAP— Bise] A 
bouncer on a ditty that sounds like 
the folk favorite, “Early In The 
Morning.” 


HAYWOOD HENRY 
(Mercury 71523) 

B “SONG OF THE BAREFOOT 
CONTESSA” (2:46) [Chappell 
ASCAP — Mario, Mascimbene, Law- 
rence] A touch of “Quiet Village” on 
this moody presentation of the pic 
theme that made some noise years 
back. Interesting sound. 

B “DU RAN GO” (2:43) [Miller- 
Songkraft BMI — Benskin, Archi- 
bald] Similar kind of message here. 


BUBBER JOHNSON 
(King 5267) 

B, “TELL ME WHO” (2:13) [Mar- 
jorie BMI — Johnson] R&B song- 
ster has appealing pop words on this 
light rhythm romancer. Sound can 
catch-on. 

B ‘I KNOW MY BABY” (2:58) 
[Margorie BMI — Johnson] A 
blues caress by the performer. Male 
chorus has good chant gimmick. Fine 
mood session. 


UPTOWNERS 
(Rage 59) 

B “WHAT’S THE MATTER” (2:22) 
[Palladium BMI — Thompson] 
Good hubby-wife humor bit that bene- 
fits from a solid hopping sax during 
the “break.” Lively rock entry. 

B “CRICKET” (2:22) [Palladium 
BMI — Thompson] This all-instru- 
mental carries a thumping sound that 
should be of interest to the Big Beat 
set. 


JIM BALCOM 
(Class 259) 

B . “HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL 
O+GAME” (2:15) [Recordo BMI— 
Balcom] Going to the game is the 
theme of this rockin’ romp from Bal- 
com and exciting combo-chorus sup- 
port. Kind of hearty rock sound to 
eye. 

B “ST. LOUIS BLUES” (2:20) 
[Handy ASCAP — Handy] The 
favorite in a funky R&B-styled show- 
ing. Comes-across effectively. 


B “JOHN HENRY” (2:04) [Pri- 
Gan BMI — Boskent] A frantic 
teen-directed treatment of the folk 
standby. The stylist belts nicely and 
the Sid Feller ork-chorus lends color- 
ful support. 

B “WE BELONG TOGETHER” 
(2:22) [Lloyd-Logan BMI— Bos- 
kent] An R&B-styled blueser is 
handed an authoritative reading. 


NORTONES 
(Warner Bros. 51 1 5) 

“SMILE, JUST SMILE” (1:40) 
[Francine BMI — Barry, Reed, 
Brill] Vocalists — with bell-like effects 
— do a fine essay of a contagious item 
asking a gal to cheer-up until her 
guy comes back. Could show-up 
strong. 

B “BOY” (2:30) [Mark VII ASCAP 
— Bowers, Ralke, Lipkin, Rosen, 
Beckman] A catchy pic main-titler is 
given a wild Latin-rock run-through. 
Songsters bemoan the fate of being 
a teenage boy. Those instrumental 
sounds really pack a punch. 


XAVIER CUGAT ORCH. 

(RCA Victor 7615) 

B . “ROCK OF THE HOURS” (1:50) 
O-t [E. B. Marks BMI — Cugat] 
Melodic source for this exciting cha- 
cha date is the familiar Ponchielli 
theme, “Dance Of The Hours.” The 
vet Latin maestro could have some- 
thing here. 

B -ROCK MORUNO” (2:20) [E. B. 

Marks BMI — Cugat, Schifrin] 
Side sticks close to a “Quiet Village”- 
like arrangement. Of sound interest. 


CHRYS LARKE 
(Do Re Mi 711) 

C “WHEN I BELONG TO YOU” 
(1:51) [BMI — Granham] Wispy- 
voiced thrush swings here against a 
jazzy Whitey Mitchell combo setting. 

D 'T’VE FORGOTTEN YOU NOW” 
(2:14) [Milan BMI — Swanston, 
Marchiano] Performer tries a beat- 
ballad blueser here.

Pick of the Week 


REGGIE PERKINS 


“SWAMP FOX” (2:35) [Walt 
Disney ASCAP — Foster, Baker] 

“TOO MANY MILES (Down The 
Road)” (2:35) 

[Cedarwood BMI — Wilkin, Tillis] 
BOBBY LORD (Columbio 41505) 


“SWAMP FOX’’ (2:00) [Walt 
Disney ASCAP — Foster, Baker] 

“BRONCO BOOGIE” 
(1:42) 

[Boxer ASCAP— Allen] 

REX ALLEN (Disneyland 125) 


(Ray Note 9) 

U , “HIGH SCHOOL CAESAR” 
»+ (1:50) [John Neel ASCAP— Neel, 
Nichols] Lots of driving sizzle on this 
Perkins-combo belt. A “high school 
Caesar” — a student who practically 
runs the school — is told he’s gonna 
get what’s coining to him. Tune’s 
from a pic of the same name. Could 
go. 

B “DATE BAIT BABY” (1:59) 
[John Neel ASCAP — Neel, 
Nichols] From another same-name 
pic, comes another rocker in solid teen 
tradition. 


CHUCK HIX 
(Verve 10190) 

B , “IS YOU IS” (1:53) [Chris BMI 
O'" — Dixon] A stormy rock affair 
and it should pay-off in good teen 
acceptance. The Hix vocal has fine 
belt humor; backing also scores. Alto- 
gether, a pro drive entry. 

B “BALLAD OF A BADMAN” 
(1:53) [JATAP BMI— Hix] A 
good-sounding “western” essay. Side 
also sells itself well to the youngsters. 


BARBARA ALLEN 
(Felsted 338) 

B “MY PROBLEM” (2:56) [E. H. 

Morris ASCAP — Livingston, 
Adelson, Montclair] Thrush invitingly 
tells that her “problem” is her boy 
friend. Pretty theme that has grow- 
on-you appeal. 

f*, “I’M IN LOVE WITH THE MAN 
v*r ON THE MOON” (1:45) [Electra 
ASCAP — Skylar, Leahy] An old-fash- 
ioned waltzer finds the lark mostly 
multi-tracked. Catchy opus. 


ZEV LANE 
(Rontodd 105) 

B “THE HEART IS NOT A TOY” 
(2:19) [Moontunes ASCAP — 

Moon, Hoffman] Atti'active plaintive 
warble by Lane, who gets OK rock- 
a-string support. Some teen deejav 
spins due. 

p, “BLACK NIGHT” (2:06) [Moon- 
tunes ASCAP — Moon, Hecht] 
Semi-dramatic Latinish stint here. 


MAY BRITT 
(20th Fox 163) 

B “LOLA-LOLA” (3:11) [Robbins 
ASCAP — Livingston, Evans] This 
is a soundtrack item from the flick 
re-make of the Marlene Dietrich 
classic, “Blue Angel.” Here, star May 
Britt offers a bright and catchy 
caberet tune ala Miss Dietrich. Fine 
cabaret combo arrangement. Different 
spin fare. 

B “FALLING IN LOVE AGAIN” 
(2:08) [Famous ASCAP — Hol- 
lander] Again from the pic, the ro- 
mancer which has been closely inden- 
tified with Miss Dietrich. Miss Britt 
does an admirable approximation of 
the Dietrich style. 


ARTIE PICASSO 
(Honover 4536) 

B “TELEPHONE” (2:17) [West- 
side BMI — ■ Solomon] Novelty 
number on rock-beat foundation. Em- 
ploys high speed voices simulating 
phone conversation. Could cause teen 
stir. 


p, “POPCORN BABY” (2:29) 
[Westside BMI — Botwin] An- 
other rock-a-novelty offering on flip 
side. 


RONNIE ALLEN 
(San 208) 

B “RIVER OF LOVE” (2:05) [Gay- 
lord BMI — Allen] Songster de- 
livers solid rock-a-ballad message 
here. Good rhythm accompaniment. 
Could contribute to the lists. 

B “J U V E N I L E DELINQUENT” 
(1:54) [Gaylord BMI — Allen] 
Rocker Allen is sock teen form on 
this driving side. Can drum up strong 
teen support. 


THE PLAYBOYS 
(Rik 572) 

» “JUNGLE FEVER” (1:57) [Ma- 
©■*"bas & Avron ASCAP — Engel] A 
driving instrumental affair that’s 
gonna make the jukes jingle with ex- 
citement. Strong chart possibility. 

B “SHOTGUN” (1:07) [Mabas & 
Avron ASCAP — Engel] This 
side’s taken for a slightly slower ride. 
Repetition of the opening theme lends 
a hypnotic intensity that should hold 
the teener’s interest. 


BOBBY ADANO 
(Imperial 5628) 

B “EAGER BEAVER HEART” 
(2:17) [Famous ASCAP— White- 
Wolfson] Catchy rock-a-blues affair 
that songster Adano delivers in tradi- 
tional rock and roll style. Might re- 
spond sales-wise to jock play. 

p , “NEVER GOT TO THE DANCE” 
(2:20) [Post ASCAP — Lampert, 
Loring, and Freed] A driver featuring 
hip talk-sing lyrics over a fetching 
rock-rhythm backing. 


JOHN CAPRI 
(Bomarc 306) 

B “WHEN I’M LONELY” (2:15) 
[Carney BMI — Finzio] Good, 
rhythmic teen attraction. The pro 
Capri belt is backed well displayed, 
tried-and-true vocal gimmicks from 
the male chorus. Combo also gets off 
a teen-wise sound. 

| 

E “LOVE FOR ME” (2:11) [Missle 
BMI — Buonodonna] The young- 
sters will feel for the songster’s wist- 1 ' 
ful way here. Inviting side. 


• “Swamp Fox” is a gay novelty — built ala “Battle Of New Orleans” — 
that can be a big tune. Both Columbia’s Lord and Disneyland’s Allen 
have readings that delightfully capture the spirit of the philosophical 
war theme. Lord has blues-rock date on “Too Many Miles (Down The 
Road),” while Allen keeps-up the bright pacing of “Swamp Fox” on 
“Bronco Boogie.” 


“I DON’T KNOW WHAT IT IS” (1:54) [Jan Pat BMI— Tanner] 
“SUMMER LOVE” (2:10) [Jan Pat BMI— Tanner] 

BLUENOTES (Brooke 111) 

9 From the infectious look of “I Don’t Know What It Is,” the Bluenotes 
and the Brooke label should have its initial pop chart stand. Happy 
romantic tuneful is rendered with a smart, where-have-they-been touch 
by the songsters. The Joe Tanner ork offers a delightful setting. Smash 
potential. Ralph Harrington is the sincere lead on the lovely coupler, 
“Summer Love.” Can be active. 


“CAT WALK” (2:20) [Angel BMI — Allen, Toussaint] 
“CREOLE ALLEY” (2:25) [Angel BMI— Allen] 

LEE ALLEN (Ember 1057) 

9 Date looks like Allen’s best chart threat since his “Walkin’ With 
Mr. Lee” two-market noise-maker. Tabbed “Cat Walk,” it’s a potent 
instrumental outing loaded with the coin-catching, dance-inducing 
sounds. It’s up beat all the way and Allen’s out front, honkin’ sax is 
a delight. Flip’s an engaging, slow steady rhythm entry that conveys 
a strong blues feeling. 


“BABALU’S WEDDING DAY” (2:10) 

[Ed Rudy Star Selections BMI — Girona, Martin, Miranda] 

“MY GIRL” (2:38) 

[Ed Rudy Star Selections BMI — Martin, Hodge, Sierra] 

THE ETERNALS (Hollywood 70) 

9 Lots of the infectious novelty vocal and instrumental tricks that 
played an important commercial role in the Eternals’ initial hit, “Rockin’ 
In The Jungle,” can be found in their newest Hollywood effort, “Babalu’s 
Wedding Day.” Kids’ll love it, especially the Joe Rene-led musical sup- 
port. Under end’s a pretty rock-a-ballad stanza. 


‘WHAT CAN I DO TO PLEASE 
YOU” (2:24) 

[Cedarwood BMI — Smith, Smith] 


“BARBARA ALLEN” 
(2:57) 

[Cedarwood BMI — Arr. Wilkin] 


MARIJOHN WILKIN (Columbia 41501) 

9 Two country-styled performances by the songstress can be in for 
a solid pop-country chart run. “What Can I Do To Please You” is an 
infectious middle-beat plaintive, while the light upbeat stint on “Bar- 
bara Allen” gives a teen-wise, yet still haunting account of the great 
folk opus. 




9 Eddy Arnold should follow his “Tennessee Stud” click witli another 
pop-country, dual-mart’er (see pop reviews).

Best Bets 


JIMMY RICKS 
(Signature 12013) 

“AT SUNRISE” [Goday BMI 
— Small] Deep-voiced songster 
Ricks, a former lead with the Rav- 
ens (they had a noise-make on 
“Secret Love”), does a fine job 
on the pretty lovely-dovey. With 
good exposure, side could collect 
lots of coin. 

B “GOODNIGHT MY LOVE” 
[Robbins ASCAP — Gordon, 
Revel] An occasinal for a light 
swing touch. Organ is included in 
setting. 


CHICO HOLIDAY 
(RCA Victor 47-7621 ) 

f», “I BELIEVE, I BELIEVE” 
O”’’ (2:05) [Sta-Ber BMI — Wil- 
liams] Chanter stirred chart action 
with his “Young Ideas.” This raf- 
ter-rocking teen-powered affair 
could send him moving toward hit 
territory again. 

TO , “ROCKIN’ HORSE TO ROCK- 
»+IN’ CHAIR” (2:20) [Planet- 
ary ASCAP — Schroeder-Gold] En- 
gaging rock-a-ballad effort could 
make this a two-sided chart affair. 


BELL NOTES 
(Time 1017) 

O, “NO DICE” (1:35) [Drexall 
O “BMI — Ceroni, Ceroni] Team, a 
name to teeners via its “I’ve Had 
It” click, can be active with this 
good-gimmicked rhythm date. Side 
opens and closes with a roll of 
dice, and in between infectious belt- 
ing occurs. 

B, “WHITE BUCKSKIN SNEAK- 
Ut ERS AND CHECKBOARD 
SOCKS” (1:59) [Clifton BMI— 
Baker, Greenlee] Boys take this 
novelty in engaging rock stride. 
Could be of sales import, too. 


IMPALAS 
(Cub 9053) 

B, “BYE EVERYBODY” (2:20) 
[Figure BMI — Zwirn, Giosasi] 
Group’s lead appealingly recites 
the inviting soft rock-a-cha opus. 
Songsters had “Sorry, I Ran All 
The Way” high on the charts. Side 
can return boys to the lists. 

B “PEGGY DARLING” (2:17) 
[Figure BMI — Zwirn, Gioasi] 
A middle-beat pounder which fea- 
tures more vocal activity from the 
other voices. Sound-wise product. 


REG OWEN ORCH. 

(Palette 5036) 

TO “OBSESSION” (2:28) [Zodiac 
O® BMI — Bee] The Owen ork, 
which proved its chart mettle with 
“Manhattan Spiritual,” could do 
important things with this bright 
instrumental display. Basic format 
is swing, embellished solidly by 
now-and-then boom sounds and 
handclaps. Jocks’ll love. 

B “GO NON-STOP” (2:25) 
[Zodiac BMI — Karten] A 
steady pound beat backs a swing- 
boogie-woogie arrangement. Socko 
ork effects. 

ROGER SMITH 
(Warner Bros. 5106) 

B , “THE LOVE OF TWO” (2:29) 
[Morris ASCAP — Lampert- 
Freed-Loring] Actor-singer, well 
known to TV fans as “77 Sunset 
Strip’s” Jeff Spencer and also re- 
membered for his chart-riding 
“Beachtime,” comes thru with a 
pretty ballad romancer (with an 
easy rock backing) that can head 
into hit territory. 

B “TICK, TICK, TICK (2:29) 
[Witmark ASCAP — Ralke] 
Calypso-flavored rock item pro- 
vides good companion piece. Can 
collect the large teen ballot. 

RON & BILL 
(Argo 5350) 

O. “IT” (2:35) [Jobete BMI— 
■ Gordy, Robinson] Boys could 
have something with their infec- 
tious rock-a-calypso session. Nov- 
elty has a format resembling “The 
Thing.” Look for pop-R&B activity. 
TO “DON’T SAY BYE-BYE” 
P+(2:30) [Jobete BMI — Gordy, 
Robinson] A good-sounding, lightly 
thumping combo arrangement 
backs the team’s strong essay on 
the upbeat romancer. A teen attrac- 
tion to keep in mind, too. 

HARRY SIMEONE CHORALE 
(20th Fox 164) 

TO “HAVE I TOLD YOU LATE- 
M+LY THAT I LOVE YOU” 
(2:46) [Duchess BMI — Wiseman] 
A very attractive chorus outing on 
the fine country sentimental classic. 
Could be a solid chart entry by the 
group, who had the big ’58 Xmas 
entry, “Little Drummer Boy.” 

B “I DREAMED LAST NIGHT” 
(3:08) [Shawne ASCAP— 
Onorati, Simeone] Lead, Jason 
Grant, does well on the feelingful 
affectionate. Source of sessions is 
an LP, “Sing We Now With The 
Harry Simeone Chorale.” 


LIT A ROZA 
(Mercury 71527x45) 

B “ONCE IN A WHILE” (2:32) 
[Miller ASCAP — Edwards-Green] 
Rock-a-ballad treatment of standard. 
Thrush offers easy delivery over tradi- 
tional rock accompaniment. Attrac- 
tive offering. 

B “ALLENTOWN JAIL” (3:29) 
[Bourne ASCAP — Gordon] Song- 
stress delivers good ballad sound on 
number, which voices her regrets over 
fate of her jailed lover. Might move 
with exposure. 


LINDA SAMPSON 
(Epic 9341) 

B “LOVER OF THE YEAR” (2:30) 
[April ASCAP — Eby, White] 
Fine Latin-rock beat sounds on this 
happy essay from the lark and Chuck 
Sagle ork-chorus. It’s a sound that 
can take-off. 

B “IN-BETWEEN TEEN” (2:30) 
[April ASCAP — Eby, White] 
Songstress and musical companions 
settle down to an attractive teen af- 
fair. 


BILL SANFORD CHORUS-ORCH. 
(Top Rank 2020) 

TO “THE GREAT PRETENDER” 
St* ( 2:35) [Panther ASCAP— Ram] 
Lots of rock-a-string know-how in 
this come-back for the big Platters’ 
item. Chorus is way up front, while 
the ork provides a strong pounding- 
string beat. To be eyed. 

B “TEMPO DI ROMA” (2:20) 
[Peer International BMI — Sher- 
man, Valando] Pleasing sentimental 
warbling. 


HONKERS 
(Okeh 7124) 

TO “HONK!” (2:19) [B. F. Wood 

MT" ASCAP — Bergman] Honking-ef- 
fects (from a sax) add nicely to a fine 
drive-sound from the combo. Guitars 
do an exceptional noteworthy job. Eye 
this entry. 

B “DO YOU PROMISE?” (2:07) 
[B. F. Wood ASCAP — Bergman] 
Funky-styled session. Voice opens 
with the wedding vow and isn’t heard 
again til the end when he says “I now 
pronounce you.” 


MARGRIT IMLAU 
(Decco 30981) 

B “BYE UM BYE (Damit Ich Dir 
Imponier)” (2:27) [Hecht, Lan- 
caster & Buzzell ASCAP — Jacobson, 
Roberts, Bartels] Bright German im- j 
port, with the lark warbling in Ger- 
man and the ork-chorus in merry 
rock-styled support. Catchy entry. 

f* _L “NO NO BABY (No, No, Na, Na, 

W ' Mh, Mh . . .)” (1:55) [Patricia 
BMI — Chase, Thompson, McClughan, 
Bartels] More in novelty vein. 


JOANNA DEAN/ 

TOMASSA GIOVANI 

(Form 101) 

B “EVERYTHING TO ME, MY 
LOVE” (2:12) [House Of For- 
tune BMI — Motola] A new pop ver- 
sion of the Debussy melody (familiar 
pop adaptation is tagged “My Rev- 
erie”) is appealingly handled by song- 
stress Dean. Backing is an adequate 
soft beat ork-chorus arrangement. 

B “EVERYTHING TO ME, MY 
LOVE” (2:29) [House Of For- 
tune BMI — Motola] A fine rock-a- 
string version of the melody. Both 
portions should be eyed. 


MAX ROACH 
(Mercury 71517) 

B “AS LONG AS YOU’RE LIV- 
ING” (2:20) [Milma BMI— Tur- 
rentine, Priester] Colorful — possibly 
commercial jazz fare. Side opens with 
a light beat from drummer Roach and 
a bassist, with a trumpet and trom- 
bone playing over the beat for most 
of the session. Just might make noise. 

B “QUIET AS IT’S KEPT” (2:26) 
[Milma BMI — Lee] Things are 
relaxed and inventive on this end. 
Great Roach work underneath the 
brass. 


MAX BYGRAVES 

(London 1881) 

B “LAST NIGHT I DREAMED” 
(2:15) [Robbins ASCAP — By- 
graves] English songster is heard in 
an appealing light-beat session. Easy 
on the sentimental, Bygraves is back- 
ed by good soft-rock thoughts from 
the Johnny Douglas ork-chorus. 
Worth deejay time. Tune’s from a pic 
tabbed “Bobbikins.” 

fi . “BOBBIKIN’S LULLABY” (2:20) 
V"r [Robbins ASCAP — Bygraves] 
Tender work from both performer 
and setting. 



DODGERS 
(Top Rank) 

©.“UPTURN” (2:01) [Renown 
® "“Peer International BMI — 
Smith] Solid guitar-led teen in- 
strumental. This no let-up entry 
could reach a strong chart posi- 
tion. Other versions have been 
issued. 

B “SAND AND SEA” (2:16) 
[Envoy-Sanford] Pretty Span- 
ish-type phrasing on this interest- 
ing, deliberate combo outing. A 
castinet sound is featured. 


LUXEMBURG SINGERS 
(Play Me 3518) 

TO , “LOVE, LIFE AND DREAMS” 
’"(2:06) [Moorpark Maxwell 

ASCAP — Maxwell] Ork in straight 
ballad effort while chorus supplies 
chiming bell sounds. Has an origi- 
nal stamp which should command 
loads of teen attention. 

B “DOT DIDDLE LUM PUM” 
(2:09) [Moorpark Maxwell 

ASCAP — Maxwell] Here the 
chorus chants over driving rock- 
guitar beat. Interesting teen sound. 
Eric Von Dame leads the group on 
both lids. 


JEFF & P. J. 

(Royce 0002) 

B “MR. BLUES” (2:37) [Bo-An 
BMI — Clark, Clark] The 14-year- 
old songsters blend nicely on the ap- 
pealing item, not to be confused with 
the current Fleetwoods’ smash. 

B “MY FRAGILE HEART” (2:11) 
[Bo-An BMI— Clark, Clark] Jeff 
solos and displays a pro driving style. 
Good rhythmic. 


LENNIE DAVIS 

(Sheen 45-103) _ Jlj 

f* , “IN A SIDEWALK PENNY AR- 
IrrCADE” (2:13) [Robbin ASCAP— j 
Kalmanoff, Schroder, White, MacDon- 
ald] Conventional medium-tempo jazz 
offering. Davis’ quartet backs up on 
on this half. Can get some jock spins. 

C “SOMEONE” (1:56) [Goldband ; 

BMI — Salerno — Dean] Rock ’n 
roll doings on this portion with the i 
Sam Trippe ork offering musical A 
support.

MODERN AIRES 
(Mercury 71529) 

» , “DON’T DREAM” (3:05) 
11+ [Neal Hefti ASCAP — Howard, 
Hefti] A soft and appealing- 
swinger on a fine jazz-styled bal- 
lad by the vet vocal team. Jock 
will be picking-up side. Might 
make noise. 

B “LIKE YOUNG” (2:43) [Rob- 
bins ASCAP — Webster, Pre- 
vin] Group chants most of the way 
on the Andre Previn-David Rose 
click swinger. A bright display also 
good for a solid deejay turn-table 


ROCKBUSTERS 
(Cadence 1371) 

m , “TOUGH CHICK” (2:15) 
©+ [Sherman DeVorzon BMI — 
DeVorzon, Holmes] Instrumental 
should carry lots of stroll weight 
with the kids. It’s a no hurry, 
interesting-sounding pace. Expo- 
sure can mean a lot. 

B “CHICO” (1:55) [Sherman 
DeVorzon BMI — Champion, 
Dyer] Most of side is pure upbeat 
rock, but some sections reflect 
strong tango ideas. It’s got a 
sound. 

RAY & LINDY 

(Atco 6150) 

jj ‘BIG BETTY” (2:10) [Tree 
®+ BMI — Kellen] Song duo and 
combo expertly render a reminder 
of “Bird Dog.” A natural teen 
draw; can be a listing favorite. 

fft , “JIMMY’S GOT A GIRL” 
»+(l:56) [Tree BMI — Killen] 
Softer blend by the boys and re- 
sult is a sound to keep in mind 
also. Both are taken for rock-a- 
cha cha rides. 

EDDIE HOLLAND 

(United Artists 191 ) 

B “EVERYBODY’S GOING” 
+ (2:43) [Jobete & Jansumar 
BMI — Gordy] Fine Jackie Wilson- 
Maxv Johnson-type rock color here. 
The tricky Holland delivery gets 
some neat trick support from the 
ork-chorus, too. Keep an eye on 
deck. 

B “BECAUSE I LOVE HER” 
(2:34) [Jobete BMI — Gordy] 
Holland pours his heart out here. 
Striking ballad display. 

JACK CASDEN 
(Mercury 71525) 

“CAMPUS CUTIE” (1:52) 
[Music Products BMI — Scott] 
Somewhat of a “Venus”-type ar- 
rangement on this sunny tribute 
to the adored one. Casden’s vocal 
is first-rate and tune is catchy. 
There’s strength '-ere. 

B “A MIGHTY .0NELY MAN” 
(2:13) [Hill . Range BMI— 
Curtiss] Songstc movingly recites 
this tale about a fella who didn’t 
live until he met his gal. Exposure 
could move track. 


EDMUNDO ROS 
(London 1875) 

« , “I’VE GROWN ACCUSTOM- 
B+ED TO HER FACE” (2:10) 
[Chappell ASCAP — Lerner, Loewe] 
The “My Fair Lady” item becomes 
a bright cha-cha vehicle for the 
expert Ros crew. Might succeed 
for Ros like “I Talk To The Trees,” 
another Lerner-Loewe song. 

B “YOU’RE JUST IN LOVE” 
(2:40) [Irving Berlin ASCAP 
— Berlin] A mambo for the “Call 
Me Madam” standard. Flute has 
a good spotlight role. Both tracks 
were culled from a new Ros LP, 
“More Ros On Broadway.” 

CALLY DODD 
(Calico 1 10) 

w “TOO YOUNG” [Calico AS- 
B+CAP — Baggy, Nivens] Thrush 
does a strong emotional job on 
the teen-dramatic, not to be con- 
fused with the Nat Cole success. 
Air-time could do things to side. 

B “EMPTY HALLS” [Calico 
ASCAP — Lewis] Approach 
here carries similar emotional 
weight. 

JAMIE COE 
(Addison 15003) 

O , “SCHOOL DAY BLUES” 
B+ (2:19) [Development BMI — 
Walsh] A blues romper from the 
solid teen voice of Coe. School’s 
out, and teeners want to lose their 
“school day blues.” Enough good- 
sounding energy to mean some- 
thing. 

n , “I’LL GO ON LOVING YOU” 
B+( 2 : 19 ) [Development BMI — 
Colovas] Soft-rock rhythm ballad 
is touchingly displayed. Another 
noteworthy teen attraction from

JOEY WELZ 
(Bat 1001) 

ft , “BOPPIN’ THE STROLL” 
B+ ( 2:14) [Gil BMI— Welz] Side 
has a strong “At The Hop” feel 
and could turn-out a click. Teen- 
hep songster Welz leads the romp- 
ing way, getting sizzling combo- 
chorus assistance. Can be a smash. 

B “SHORE PARTY” (2:14) [Gil 
BMI — Welz, Hinkel, Shriner] 
Good middle-beat sounds from the 
combo and handclap gimmick. 
Voice announces the title several 
times. Might make noise. 

CLYDE STACY 
(Argyle 1001 ) 

m “A BROKEN HEART” 
B+ [Stacy] A solid ballad stand 
by Stacy on the fine country-flavor- 
ed wistful. Strong combo-chorus 
support. Here’s a deck that might 
go over big. 

B “S O Y O U N G” [Sherman] 
Interesting percussion sound 
backs a soft plaintive essay by 
Stacy. Femme effectively whispers 
words in fella’s ear. 


CHUCK JOHNSTON & JAYCEES 
(Brunswick 551 54) 


^t?l , 2EgS’.aEJ!S2ffiSFnEEnJC3ES! 


B “SWEET BABY” (1:58) [ABC 
ASCAP — Ballard] Exciting rock 
rhythmic from Johnston and combo- 
chorus. Room should be made for side 
at hops. 

B “STOP BABY” (1:55) [Bourne 
ASCAP — Ballard] Though not as 
wild as top-half, side has an infectious 
handclap gimmick. Will work out well 
at hops, too. 


MARILYNN LOVELL 
(Decca 30998) 

B “CARESS ME” (2:27) [Sam Fox 
ASCAP — Calvi, Todd, Todd] 
Thrush attractively cuddles the Ital- 
ian import. Strings and chorus play 
a sweet game. 

fi , “SUCH A NIGHT” (2:27) [Ra- 
V+leigh BMI — Chase] Songstress 
alternates between whispers and 
swing. 


BOB LUMAN 
(Warner Bros. 5105) 

jj “DREAMY DOLL” (2:10) [Pen- 
B+ ron BMI — Hargrave, Wooley] A 
moving vocal by Luman on a moving- 
true-love opus. Haunting beat from 
the combo and falsetto femme add 
to emotional session. Side’s got lots 
of teen heart. Could break. 

B ‘ BUTTERCUP” (2:07) [Penron 
BMI— Hargrave, Wooley] Song- 
ster and Don Ralke setting provide 
the kids with a pro rhythm date. 
Happy sound tailored for the teen 
dance-floor. 


ART KASSEL 
(Hanover 4537) 

B ‘ DOODLE - DOO - DOO - CHA- 
CHA” (1:50) [Feist ASCAP— 
Kassel-Stitzel] Cha cha affair with 
novelty ring when arrangement fea- 
tures sounds of twenties (with saxes 
taking the lead). Should find its way 
onto DJ’s turntables. 

B “THE CHARLESTON” (2:00) 
[Harms ASCAP — Johnson-Mc- 
Pherson] Reliable, danceable Charles- 
ton number, with smooth sound and 
easy tempo. Two good minutes of 
relaxed listening and dancing. Sides 
are from a Kassel LP. 


LARRY CLINTON 
(Kopp 282) 

B “MANHUNT” (2:06) [E. B. 

Marks BMI — Cobert] Side re- 
flects “Peter Gunn”-like thinking. 
The ork swings hard and a chorus 
chants excitingly. Clinton could go 
places with his stand here. 

B “ORGAN GRINDER’S SWING” 
(1:55) [American Academy Of 
Music ASCAP — Mills, Parish, Hud- 
son] A swing oldie is revived with a 
solid ork effects, with a whistle also 
part of the proceedings. Arrange- 
ment alternates between a tricky 
whistle-percussion sound and full- 
blown swing work. Jocks’ll be spin- 
ning. 


REX STEWART & DICKIE WELLS 
(RCA Victor 7620) 

B “LET’S DO IT” (2:50) [Harms 
ASCAP — Porter] A sultry ac- 
count of the standard, with a muted 
trumpet offering a remarkable “talk- 
ing” effect (side comes from an LP 
tagged “Chatter Jazz”). Something 
unusual for the deejays to try. 

B “LITTLE SIR ECHO” (2:30) 
[Bregman, Vocco & Conn ASCAP 
— Girard, Marsala] Faster tempo and 
the same “chatter” bit. 


ft, “DO YOU KNOW” (2:05) 
D i [Kenny Marlow Champion BMI — 
Hoffman, Maxwell] Big in voice, 
Hoffman supplies a hard-beat belt 
against a wild, funky-styled beat. 
Lots of sock appeal here. 

B “THAT’S ALL I’M LIVING 
FOR” (2:36) [Alamo ASCAP— 
Schroeder, Weisman] Dramatic beat- 
ballad turn here. 


BENNIE GREEN (Jazz) 

(Blue Note 1734) 

B “CAN’T WE BE FRIENDS” 
[Harms ASCAP — Swift, James] 
A quintet — headed by trombonist 
Green — swings with ease on the fine 
oldie. Other jazzists include Eddy 
Williams (trumpet); Sonny Clark 
(piano); Paul Chambers (bass); Jerry 
Segal (drums). 


B “MINOR REVELATION” [Melo- 
tone BMI — Ousley] Handclap- 
gimmick opens this swinger in a 
minor key. 


OSCAR PETERSON (Jazz) 

(Verve 2119) 

B “ON THE STREET WHERE 
YOU LIVE” (3:20) [Chappell 
ASCAP — Lerner, Loewe] A dandy 
melody-in-mind invention by the jazz 
pianist on the “My Fair Lady” ro- 
mancer (track was culled from a 
“MFL” Peterson LP). Even pop jocks 
can try this. 

B “I COULD HAVE DANCED 
ALL NIGHT” (2:21) [Chappell 
ASCAP — Lerner, Loewe] More mel- 
odic imagination on a “MFL” item. 


MOSE ALLISON (Jazz) 

(Prestige 1 50) 

|« , “THE SEVENTH SON” [Dixon) 
V+ Brisk keyboard-vocal stint by the 
jazzist. Middle-eastern influence in 
the arrangement. Strictly for the jazz 
jocks. 

fi . “DO NOTHING TILL YOU 
U+HEAR FROM ME” [ASCAP— 
Ellington] Blue time here on the Duke 
Ellington standby.

CHRISTMAS 


of the Week 


“THE LITTLE DRUMMER BOY” (2:31) 

[Delaware & Shawnee ASCAP — Simeone] 

“I’LL REMEMBER YOU” (1:50) [Johnny Cash BMI— Cash] 
JOHNNY CASH (Columbia 41481) 

• Session here on “The Little Drummer Boy” — a big Xmas item for 
Harry Simeone Chorale last year — can be THE Holiday deck of ’59. 
Striking- opus is told in a soft, but highly effective sound manner: a 
drum beat sound from iJereussion instruments and femme chorus back 
the deliberate Cash delivery. “I’ll Remember You” is a typically good- 
sounding light upbeat Cash ballad. 


“ADESTE FIDELES” (2:20) 
[Traditional] 


“HARK! THE HERALD ANGELS 
SING” (2:05) [Traditional] 


ROGER WILLIAMS (Kapp 299) 

• The readings of the two Xmas standbys by Williams and the ork 
should be favorites for both Holiday air-time and home listening. Both 
of the beautiful themes are handled with reverence. Make sure the 
Xmas crowd knows about this entry. 


“CHRISTMAS BRIDE” (2:50) [Governor BMI— Jay] 

“SILVER BELLS” (2:28) [Paramount ASCAP — Livingston, Evans] 
RAY CONNIFF SINGERS (Columbia 41484) 

• “Christmas Bride” is a lovely waltzer that seems to have Xmas 
stay-power. The Conniff Singers and ork do a first-vocal job on the 
opus. It’s a Holiday tune and performance to watch. A nice easy quality 
on the Yuletide favorite, “Silver Bells.” Both sessions are from a 
“Christmas With Conniff” LP. 


ROGER WILLIAMS 
(Kapp 300) 

Q ‘‘MARY’S BOY CHILD” (3:16) 
©’’'[Schumann ASCAP — Hairston] 
The Williams’ keyboard is sensitively 
spotlighted on the beautiful Yuletide 
melody, a hit for Harry Belafonte a 
few years ago. Strings warmly sup- 
port. Excellent Holiday programming. 

B “W I N T E R WONDERLAND” 
(3:00) [Bregman, Vocco & Conn 
ASCAP — Smith, Bernard] A lightly 
bouncing account of the delightful 
wintertime standby. 

CHARLIE WEAVER 
(Columbia 41 504) 

« , “XMAS IN MT. IDY” (2:27) 
[Leeds ASCAP — Arquette, Dant] 
A funny re-write of “The Night Be- 
fore Christmas” in which “Charlie 
Weaver” (Cliff Arquette) recalls 
Xmas in his now familiar home-town 
of Mt. Idy. His following will love 
this. 

B “HAPPY NEW YEAR, HAPPY 
NEW YEAR” (3:18) [Leeds AS- 
CAP — Arquette, Dant] Tipsy vocaliz- 
ing and narrative by Charlie. Funny 
stuff again. Source of both sessions 
is Arquette’s “Charle Weaver Sings 
For His People.” 

MARIO LANZA 
(RCA Victor 7622) 

B . “GUARDIAN ANGEL” (3:48) 
■+ [Walt Disney ASCAP — Marz, 
Gerda] The late tenor expressively 
renders a commanding opus, included 
in a “Lanza Sings Christmas Carols.” 
Fans of Lanza will really go for this 
reading. 

« . “I’LL WALK WITH GOD” (3:00) 
*>+ [Harms ASCAP— Brodsyky, Web- 
ster] From the latest film version of 
“Student Prince” — which featured 
Lanza’s voice — comes this powerful 
inspirational number, reverently read 
by the performer. 


GINGER DAWN 
(Lee 1001) 

f* , “ROCKING WITH SANTA” 
V • (2:28) [Adams Ethridge BMI — 
Adams, Ethridge] Country-styled light 
beat rocker about a gal who dreams 
she does a rock ’n roll dance with 
Santa Claus. 

C “MADNESS” (2:30) [Adams 
Ethridge] A ballad with an affa- 
ble bounce. 


ERIC JAY 
(Bullseye 1021 ) 

U,“LITTLE DRUMMER BOY” 
O' (2:49) [Delaware Shawnee AS- 
CAP — Simeone] Youngster does a fine 
job on last year’s big Xmas success, 
receiving top-notch Marion ork-chorus 
support. Could make a strong sales 
impression. 

B “SILENT NIGHT” [Traditional] 
A warm, string-filled reading of 
the Holiday mainstay. A children- 
geared narrative is also included. 


Re-Issue 


BING CROSBY 
(Kapp 196) 


B “HOW LOVELY IS CHRIST- 
MAS” (2:43) [Berry BMI— Sund- 
gaard, Wilder] A re-issue of a previ- 
ous Xmas entry by Crosby. Number 
is warm and vet sings with his unusual 
tender regard for such material. 

B “MY OWN INDIVIDUAL STAR” 
(2:45) [Walton ASCAP — Cahn, 
Rodgers] The charming waltzer — also 
a re-issue — is good for Holiday appeal, 
too. Attractive four-color sleeve.

ULAR PICKS OF THE WEEK 


“SWEET SOUNDS BY THE BROWNS”— 
RCA Victor LPM 2144 & Stereo LSP 2144 

The Browns have a soft harmonic quality 
which they demonstrated on their first pop 
hit, “The Three Bells” (included here). This 
gentle approach is carried throughout the 
twelve numbers on the group’s first album 
and should make many new fans for them. 
Tunes include “Love Me Tender,” “Blues 
Stay Away From Me,” “Unchained Melody” 
and a delightful ditty tagged “Hi De Ank 
Turn.” Should be a big seller. 


"ODDS AGAINST TOMORROW”— Original 
Film Soundtrack composed and conducted 
by John Lewis — United Artists UAL 4061 
& Stereo UAS 5061 

John Lewis’s score for this dramatic film 
episode is a fully integrated jazz score: 
tense, electrifying and, unlike many other 
jazz scores, wholly necessary in advancing 
the intensity of the plot. The Modern Jazz 
Quartet, sans Lewis, plays important solo 
roles in the music, within the confines of 
a large ork. The music is exciting and in- 
triguing, capable of standing apart from 
the film as exceptionally interesting listen- 
ing. Can be another “I Want To Live!” 
package for UA. 


“GREATEST!” — Johnny Cash — Sun SLP 
1240 


Sun has compiled a package of previous 
Johnny Cash releases that looks destined 
for a long sales ride. The accent here is 
on country music and Cash’s warm per- 
sonality is a special delight. The set con- 
tains “I Forgot to Remember to Forget,” 
“Katy Too,” “You Win Again,” “Hey Good 
Looking” and his current Sun single, “Good- 
bye Little Darlin’” and “You Tell Me.” 


!” — Dinah Shore — 
Capitol T 1247 & Stereo ST 1247 

Dinah Shore’s initial Capitol date is in- 
deed a pleasure. With the ever-present, 
ever-tasteful, ever-swinging Nelson Riddle 
arrangements providing the basic spark, 
Miss Shore’s singing takes on a graceful 
swinging quality, with a delicately intimate 
approach. The tunes are all evergreens and 
include “Where Or When,” “Falling in Love 
with Love,” “Taking a Chance on Love” 
and “It All Depends on You.” Her many 
fans will be thrilled with this “new look.” 


1 HE SI RINGS SING” — The Knights- 
bridge Strings — Top Rank RM 303 

As in its hit single, “Cry,” the Strings 
update a dozen past hits, some recent, some 
old, soaring gracefully over the melody. 
Big beat rhythm is added for current con- 
sumption. Among the tunes are “Here in 
My Heart,” “Wheel of Fortune,” “My 
Prayer” and “Cry.” The charming strings 
and easily identifiable beat make for an 
extremely saleable combination. Striking 
die-cut cover is an outstanding display piece. 


IIUIIIIII!IIII!II1IIIID!I1II!II 


“BROADWAY SHOW STOPPERS”— The Play- 
mates — Roulette R 25084 (Monaural & Stereo) 


“SONGS FOR ROUNDERS"— Hank Thompson— 
Capitol T 1246 

In twelve songs Thompson sings about bound- 
ers and bums, their troubles but mostly their 
fun. Entire session is a delightfully humorous 
excursion that will please many pop buyers as 
well as his country fans. Package includes the 
standard “Bummin’ Around,” “Drunkard’s Blues,” 
“Rovin’ Gambler” and “I’ll Be a Bachelor Till I 
Die.” 


“BLOSSOM DEARIE SINGS COMDEN AND 
GREEN”— Verve MG V-2109 

Miss Dearie has a pixieish, Rose Murphy — 
like voice that squeeks in the most enchanting 
way. She also plays a capable jazz piano and 
with a rhythm section of top jazzmen provides 
her own accompaniment for this bill of Comden- 
Green songs. Sophisticated and of superior qual- 
ity, the tunes include “The Party’s Over,” “Just 
In Time,” “It’s Love” and “Lucky to be Me.” 
Of particular interest to jazz and show music 
markets. 


“FRONT ROW CENTER ”— Charles K. L. Davis 
—Everest LPBR 5050 & Stereo SDBR 1050 


Since winning the Metropolitan Opera Audi- 
tions of the Air, Davis has become a favorite of 
international concert audiences. On this album 
he lends his magnificent tenor voice to great 
songs from Broadway among which are “Tonight,” 
“And this is My Beloved,” “You Are Beautiful” 
and “I Have Dreamed.” Davis’ control, range and 
power provide a beautiful listening treat. Of 
note too is Franz Allers’ ork and chorus direction. 


The comedy singing trio, who have also scored 
with pop singles (“Beep Beep,” “What is Love?”), 
go “straight” here singing a dozen lighthearted 
show tunes, that have attained high popularity. 
Humorous numbers such as “There is Nothin’ 
Like A Dame,” “Once in Love With Amy,” “Luck 
Be A Lady” and “Jubilation T. Cornpone” are 
rendered with pro ability. An essential assist 
comes from Joe Reisman’s swinging accompani- 
ment. The show music coterie will appreciate the 
freshness. 


“IRVING BERLIN IN LATIN AMERICA”— 
Machito and his Orchestra — Tico SLP 1062 


Machito’s ork, one of the best in its field, 
adapts twelve ageless Irving Berlin tunes to fit 
into its pattern of infectious Latin dance music. 
Favorites such as “Heat Wave,” “Let’s Face the 
Music,” “Always” and “Marie” are here trans- 
formed into exciting mambo, cha cha cha, etc. 
sessions. Machito has a large following. 


MONTAND 


YVES 


“CHANSON POPULAIRES DE FRANCE” 
Yves Montand — Monitor MF 324 

Montand scored highly in his current one-m; 
Broadway show and this LP presents him sin 
ing some of the popular French songs in his r 
pertoire. The musical accompaniment is sligl 
enabling Montand’s warm, personal style to cor 
through smilingly, unaided. Personal charm 
the keynote here, and although there are i 
translations of the French lyrics, the message 
each song is capable conveyed. Appealing, e 
joyable listening. 


“NOW” — Fred Astaire-Kapp KL-1165 & stereo 
KS-3049 

A fine collection of Astaire singing mostly 
Astaire-associated tunes. Clean and inventive ork- 
chorus arrangements by Pete King and Marty 
Paich are directed by King, who wisely never 
allows the ork to overcome Astaire’s ageless 
voice. Gershwin and Berlin are the main delight- 
ful song contributors. A real goody for the great 
talent’s following. 


"THE LAWRENCE WELK GLEE CLUB”— Dot 
DLP 3218 (Monaural & Stereo) 

Welk’s glee club, a popular feature of his 
show, is presented on its first disk in a program 
of varied items. Directed by Pete Lance, the 
group has been increased for this date. They offer 
fine male chorale readings of “The Whiffenpoof 
Song,” “Cornin’ Thru the Rye,” “Marching Along 
Together,” “Danny Boy” and eight others. A real 
Welk fan pleaser. 


“MAHALIA” — Mahalia Jackson — Apollo LP 486 

The great gospel singer is represented here 
by previous singles culled from the label’s catalog. 
The numbers include “Move On Up A Little 
Higher,” “Didn’t It Rain,” “Just Over The Hill” 
and “Hands Of God.” Solid gospel-shelf appeal, 
of course.

Album Reviews 


“LET’S DANCE TO THE MOVIES!”— The Sonny 
Moon Orchestra — Warner Bros. W 1335 & Stereo 

WS 1335 

Moon’s ork combines a lightly swinging brass- 
sax sound with the current rock beat. On this, 
his second WB LP Moon presents 30 songs from 
the films, arranged into 7 medleys, four medleys 
“on the medium side,” three “on the slower side.” 
Jerry Gray’s arrangements are easy to dance to, 
succeeding in the album’s primary motive. Jock- 
eys take note. 


“GARNER PLAYS GARNER”— Linton S. Gar- 
ner — Enrica 2001 

Linton Garner, though not as famous or ac- 
complished as his younger brother Erroll, is 
nevertheless a fine pianist as proven here on his 
initial LP. He acquits himself as a happy swing- 
ing, unpretentious, melodic music maker, playing 
eleven of his own compositions. They include 
blues, gospel-styled, ballads and up-tempo romps. 
Accompanying him are bass and drums. Date 
brings another Garner to the jazz public. 


"LEE KONITZ MEETS JIMMY GIUFFRE” 

Verve MG V-8335 

The important factors of this session are 
Konitz’ alto solos and Giuffre’s arranging. Konitz 
has long been a musician of great skill and art- 
istry. Here his playing is supported by a stand- 
ard sax section, which also includes Giuffre in 
a minor role on baritone. This harmonic backing 
lends even greater beauty to Konitz’ delicate 
playing, especially on the ballads. Selections in- 
clude “Cork ’N Bib,” “The Song Is You” and 
“Someone To Watch Over Me.” 


“NEW SOIL” — Jackie McLean — Blue Note 4013 

McLean is one of the individual and important 
new alto voices today and this Blue Note date 
enables him to demonstrate his surging, hard 
driving technique. Trumpeter Donald Byrd comes 
in for some sizzling solos himself, and the pack- 
age is tied up with a good rhythm section. Tunes 
are originals; two by McLean, three by pianist 
Walter Davis, Jr. Exciting, free-blowing set. 


JANACEK: “String Quartet Nos. 1 & 2” — The 
Smetana Quartet — ARTIA-ALP 109 

This group offers sympathetic performances of 
Janacek’s scores. The music makes wide use of 
Slavic folk themes, and the performers clearly 
demonstrate their knowledge of the idiom. Ap- 
pealing offering for chamber music fans. 


“BASIE/ECKSTINE, INC.” — Count Basie 
and Billy Eckstine — Roulette R 52029 
Although he hasn’t done much in this area 
in recent years, Billy Eckstine can wail the 
blues with feeling. This package presents 
this side of the singer along with sym- 
pathetic blues support from the great Basie 
ork. It’s a swinging session to which cleffer 
Eckstine has contributed 6 blues numbers; 
among the tunes are “Stormy Monday 
Blues,” “Jelly Jelly,” “Little Mama” and 
“Don’t Cry Baby.” Big name jazz appeal. 


S¥EREO 


"THE BIRTH OF A BAND” — Quincy Jones 
— Mercury SR 60129 (Monaural & Stereo) 
The album marks Jones’ initial efforts in 
the forming of his own big band and it 
comes off in a very swinging if subdued 
manner. Jones’ charts get a good ensemble 
sound and he leaves ample room for solo- 
ists. Among the personnel here are Zoot 
Sims, Benny Golson, Jimmy Cleveland, Clark 
Terry, Joe Newman, Harry Edison and Phil 
Woods; the selections include “Moanin’,” 
“I Remember Clifford,” “Tickletoe” and 
“Tuxedo Junction.” Impressive new outlet 
for a fine arranging talent. 


TCHAIKOVSKY: “Symphony No. 5 in E Minor” ; 
— London Symphony Orchestra, Sir Malcolm j 
Sargent, conductor — Everest LPBR 6039 & 
Stereo SDBR 3039 

A fine performance of a familiar catalog item. 
Sargent and the Londoners retain the freshness 
of the standard in a compelling reading. The con- 
ductor, at all times, keeps the ork under his 
characteristically excellent direction. Will wear 
against competition. 


\CKIE WIcLEAN 


BACH: “The Passion According To St. Matthew” 
—The Vienna State Opera Orchestra, Mogens 
Woldike, Conductor — Vanguard BGS 5022/25 
(Monaural & Stereo) 

Any recording of St. Matthew’s Passion is an 
ambitious operation. Here, the results justify the ^ 
ambition. Conductor, soloists, orchestra and 
chorus offer a convincing, dedicated performance 
of the Bach masterpiece. Woldike is at all times 
aware of the huge structure of the composition, 
and integrates the participants with great judg- 
ment. An able representative of the choral 
catalog. 


“FORTY ALL-TIME FAVORITES”— Paul Taub- 
man at the Penthouse Club Organ — Columbia CL 
1363 (Monaural & Stereo) 

Taubman, who entertains customers at his 
Penthouse Club by playing the organ, does so 
here on his initial Columbia outing. Forty tunes 
are divided into eight medleys and given a bright j 
rendition by Taubman’s “happy” organ and 
rhythm accompaniment. For dancing and espe- 
cially nostalgic listening, this set excells. 




BIRD IN THE WIND” — Jazz at the Showboat, 
VoL 2 — Charlie Byrd — Offbeat OJ 3005 

Byrd’s exciting unamplified guitar playing is 
ng national jazz attention, though Byrd 
only in Washington, D.C. Besides Byrd’s 
intriguing classical guitar work, this album also 
ants Byrd (his trio) playing with a three- 
woodwind section from the National Sym- 
' my, and backing up vocalist Ginny Byrd on 
i the twelve tunes. Well-balanced set that 
should, greatly increase the guitarist’s growing 


HANDEL: “Water Music Suite”; HAYDN: “Sym- 
phony No. 94” — The Pittsburgh Symphony Or- 
chestra, conducted by William Steinberg — CA- 
PITOL P 8495 & Stereo SP 8495 

Illuminating performances by Steinberg and 
the orchestra capture the diverse styles of both 
works, as well as investing them with imagina- 
tion. In the Haydn Symphony particularly, Stein- 
berg’s musical personality should overcome tough 
catalog competition. The orchestra responds sen- 
sitively, effectively conveying Steinberg’s con- 
ceptions. Good selling item from point of view 
of performance and items offered. 


rax DIMBNMOM«L STEHEO 


SCHUMANN: “Symphony No. 1 in B flat Major,” 
“Manfred Overture” — The Cleveland Orchestra, 
George Szell, conductor — Epic LC 3612 (Monaural 
& Stereo) 

Szell realizes the romantic potential of both 
works in stimulating, poetic performances in 
which the ork responds alertly to the conductor’s j 
demands. The growing reputation of the Cleve- 
landers will influence sales in this direction. 


CLASSICAL PICK OF THE WEEK 


STERSO 


ClfOPIN 


i > mi mid 

\s| Kj ;\ Y/> 


CHOPIN: Vladimir Ashkenazy, Pianist — 
Angel S 35648 (Monaural & Stereo) 

The young Russian pianist demonstrates 
his enormous pianistic gifts in these per- 
formances of Chopin piano works. In such 
compositions as the “B Minor Sonata,” and 
a group of waltzes and mazurkas, one is 
aware of his complete sense of touch and 
style, his flawless technical equipment, and 
deep musical imagination. Piano lovers will 
want this one.

A program of fourteen Christmas carols 
is sung with rich vibrant feeling by the 
late tenor, whose voice is a memorable 
listening treat. Paul Baron tastefully con- 
ducts the ork and chorus behind Lanza 
on “Away in a Manger,” “I Saw Three 
Ships,” “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear,” 
“Guardian Angels” and other more stand- 
ard fare. Immense commercial potential.

THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS 


jTHE MORMON TABERNACLE CHOIR 


“THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS"— The 
Mormon Tabernacle Choir — Columbia 3IL 
5423 (Monaural & Stereo) 

Proving their pop saleability with “The 
Lord’s Prayer” LP, the choir could have 
another success with this album of religious 
Christmas hymns. Such revered numbers as 
“0 Little Town of Bethlehem,” “Silent 
Night,” “0 Come All Ye Faithful” and 
“Hark! the Herald Angels Sing” are given 
beautifully delicate treatments by the large 
choir. Can be one of the big “serious” al- 
bums.

“CHRISTMAS WITH CONNIFF” — Ray 
Conniff Singers — Columbia CL 1390 (Mon-

The Conniff sound is taken to a dozen 
popular Christmas songs resulting in a glit- 
tering - song fest that will be appreciated 
by many. The singers are bright and bouncy 
and the famous shuffle beat is present, pro 
viding the spark. Among the selections 
are “Winter Wonderland,” “Silver Bells,” 
“Sleigh Ride” and “Christmas Bride.” 
Should be a very successful seasonal pack- 
age.

& Stereo LSP 2054 

To their usual instrumentation, the trio 
has added chimes, bells, oboe and two tubas 
for a fun-filled, rhythmic interpretation of 
fourteen popular Christmas songs. The ac 
cent is on novelty sounds and the Three 
Suns prove to be extremely capable in this 
department. The stereo version is partic- 
ularly effective. Tunes include “The Chip 
munk Song,” “Jingle Bell Rock,” “Winter 
Wonderland,” “Let It Snow” and others of 
this ilk. An especially delightful Xmas 
package.

Lanin’s popular society ork serves up 
a Christmas dance session that will be wel- 
comed by many seasonal parties. A total 
of twenty-five appropriate songs are ar- 
ranged into seven dance tracks and played 
in the sparkling, snappy society beat that 
distinguishes the Lanin sound. Deck is 
keyed to party dancing and succeeds in 
conveying the happy mood.

a pipe organ recital of Christmas carols, among 
which are “God King Wenceslaus,” “We Three 
Kings,” “Angels We Have Heard on High,” 
“Coventry Carol” and 11 others. The approach is 
straightforward and unaffected, the organ weav- 
ing a rich, reverent sound. Stereo sound is a

Columbia Launches Xmas Program 



NEW YORK — Columbia Records 
launched a Christmas program keyed 
to the theme of “Give the Lasting 
Gift of Music,” according to William 
P. Gallagher, Director of Sales. 

Prompted by the successful Christ- 
mas Season of 1958, Columbia is 
repeating its 1958 sales program 
which allows the dealer to earn a 
25 per cent return for credit on the 
selected Christmas items or, if the 
dealer so chooses, an additional 12 ^ 
per cent additional discount. 

Along with 1958’s great hit Johnny 
Mathis and Mitch Miller Christmas 
albums, Columbia will present these 
new releases: “Christmas With Con- 
niff,” “Music of Christmas” by Percy 
Faith, a “Season’s Greetings” album, 
Handel’s “Messiah” with Eugene Or- 
mandy conducting the Mormon Taber- 
nacle Choir, the Philadelphia Orches- 
tra and Eileen Farrell; the “Spirit of 
Christmas” by the Mormon Taber- 
nacle Choir, among others. 

“By buying intelligently and selling 
enthusiastically,” said Gallagher, “we 
can expect these, plus other strong 
Christmas items, to bring peak sales 
and profit to a new high during the 
1959 Christmas season.” 

“Give the Lasting Gift of Music” 


listings of his previous hit albums. 

“Newsome Twosome” — A pair of 
22 x 28", die-cut Christmas tree 
streamers with 6 x 6" full-color album 
repros. 

“Mormon Magic” — A 40 x 60" 
triple-panel display of the Mormon 
Tabernacle Choir’s “Messiah” and 
“Spirit of Christmas.” 

Others are: a 22 x 28" red and gold 
browser promoting albums as gifts 
holding 40 LP’s; a 36 page full-color 
gift catalog with selected listings; 
two Harmony stereo hangers; four 
mobiles, each featuring a pair of 
double-mounted covers; and four spe- 
cial gift-wrapped displays addressed 
to “The Jazz Buff,” “The Collector,” 
“The Concert Goer” and “The First 
Nighter,” highlighting the appropri- 
ate gift merchandise. 


RCA Victor Unveils 
New Discovery 

HOLLYWOOD, CAL.— RCA Victor 
last week debuted its newest talent 
find, young singer-actor Rod Lauren 
from Fresno, California, a James 
Dean look-alike whom the label con- 
siders one of the hottest properties 
ever to emerge on the West Coast. 

According to Bob Yorke, RCA Vic- 
tor’s West Coast Manager, Lauren 
was signed to a long term contract 
after A & R Director Dick Peirce 
heard the youngster on a demo record 
submitted to him, not for the vocalist, 
but for the songs. Peirce turned down 
the tunes but bought the voice. 

Lauren’s first single release will 
be issued this week, and he is sched- 
uled for a nation-wide DJ tour to 
meet Jockeys in all the major cities. 
TV appearances and film roles are 
already being offered the youngster. 


ASCAP “Overseer” Suggested 


will also be the theme of a full-scale 
advertising and sales promotion cam- 
paign. National advertising will in- 
clude a series of full-color pages, 
two-color spreads, as well as black- 
and-white pages in consumer publica- 
tions. These will feature strong Fall 
releases as well as all fast-moving 
Christmas merchandise. 

Co-op mats will be available for 
popular and Masterwork albums, 
along with a master mat containing 
all album covers and listings. A full 
color two-page spread will be the 
highlight of Columbia’s trade adver- 
tising plans and attractive program 
ads featuring all Masterworks artists 
and Broadway shows will be placed 
in concert programs in key cities. 

To further back up the “Give the 
Lasting Gift of Music” theme, Colum- 
bia is also launching a sales promo- 
tion campaign which will include the 
above-pictured “Tree-Full of Treats,” 
a 22 x 34" revolving, white and gold 
Christmas tree displaying twenty-four 
6 x 6" scale, full color album cover 
reproductions. 

Special Christmas and fall mer- 
chandise displays also includes: 

“Sure-Fire Stuff” — Mitch Miller’s 
new “Fireside Sing Along” album 
plus his six previous packages. 

“Ray of Delight” — Spotlighting the 
“Christmas With Conniff” LP plus 


NEW YORK — A selection of two 
men to oversee the “equitable dis- 
tribution” of $28,000,000 in annual 
ASCAP royalties has been suggested 
by Chief Judge Sylvester Ryan. This 
development came out of a hearing 
here last week in which ASCAP mem- 
bers were given a chance to express 
their views on proposed amendments 
to the consent decree between the 
Government and ASCAP. 

The consent decree — growing out of 
anti-trust action against ASCAP in 
1941 — has had new amendments pro- 
posed by the Government and ASCAP 
which among other things, would give 
ASCAP members a greater voice in 
the organization; provide more “equit- 
able” distribution of royalties; pro- 
vide for more Government supervi- 
sion of ASCAP. 

Judge Ryan mentioned two men he 
favors for the job: former New York 
Senator Irving M. Ives and John E. 
McGeehan, retired Supreme Court 
Justice. If the overseer course is 
taken, the appointees would be paid 
by ASCAP and would report every 
three months to the court for con- 
ferences on how the new amendments 
were working out. 


Lanin “Christmas Dance Party” 


NEW YORK — Epic Records has 
released “Christmas Dance Party,” a 
collection of dance-arranged Yule- 
tide favorites by Lester Lanin and 
his orchestra. This album is the so- 
ciety ork maestro’s ninth in a series 
for the label.

One-Stop Association Formed 


CHICAGO — Bill McGuire, general j 
manager of Lormar Distributing Com- 
pany, this city, reported last week 
that a two day meeting was held, at 
the Morrison Hotel, October 17 and 18 
among one-stop dealers from all over 
the country, for the purpose^ of form- 
ing an association. 

It is important to state, McGuire 
said, that all in attendance agreed 
unanimously that an organization of 
this sort would not only be beneficial 
but is of vital importance to them. 

Among the one-stop operators in 
attendance at the meeting were: Lou 
Boorstein, Leslie Distributing Co., 
New York; Stu Glassman, Radio Doc- 
tors, Milwaukee; Harold Lieberman, 
Lieberman Music Co., Minneapolis, 
Des Moines, Omaha and Milwaukee; 
Bob Mahl, Record City, Milwaukee; 
Chuck Sisney, Hi-Fi One-Stop, Peoria; 
Raoul Shapiro, Budisco One-Stop, 
Miami; Jim O’Dwyer, Music Box One- 
Stops, Chicago, Dallas, Atlanta, Hous- 
ton, Denver; Barney Stein, All 
Brands Distributing Co., Pittsburgh; 
Eddie Ockel, One-Stop Record Serv- 
ice, St. Louis; John Carmody, All 
Record Service Co., Oak Park; Jim 
McGuire, Oakland Record One-Stop, 
Oakland and Emeryville, California; 
and Bill McGuire, Lormar Distribut- 
ing Co., Chicago. 

A committee of six was formed to 
draft the rules and by-laws to be pre- 
sented to the entire organization for 


discussion and adoption in mid-No- 
vember. The date and meeting will 
be announced in The Cash Box shortly. 
Meanwhile, an attorney will be re- 
tained to help draw up the charter 
and assist with the preparation of the 
rules and by-laws. 

The purpose of the organization 
for one-stop operators, according to 
McGuire, is to: (1) improve relation- 
ship with their local distributors in 
each respective area; (2) exchange 
general information through the pub- 
lication of a weekly newsletter; (3) 
attempt to add stature and stability 
to the one-stop record business; (4) 
to achieve good public relations na- 
tionally. 

A membership board will be ap- 
pointed at the next meeting to vote 
on membership applications. All one- 
stop operators are invited to apply 
for membership. The qualifications 
for membership are: (1) financial sta- 
bility (adequate capitalization) for 
the size and scope of their individual 
businesses; (2) the one-stop operator 
must be current with his suppliers and 
cannot be in direct competition with 
his supplier and should maintain ethi- 
cal trade practices throughout. 

Officers elected at the meeting were: 
Bill McGuire, temporary chairman; 
and John Carmody, treasurer. 

The committee of six consists of: 
Stu Glassman, Bob Mahl, Chuck Sis- 
ney, Jim O’Dwyer, John Carmody and 
Bill McGuire.

Why No “Don’t You Know” 



NEW YORK — Della Reese ap- 
peared on the Ed Sullivan Show last 
Sunday (25), but did not sing her 
Victor smash, “Don’t You Know.” 
Reason: the song is an adaptation of 
Puccini’s “Musetta’s Waltz” from “La 
Boheme” and in most areas of the 
world — including Canada where the 
Sullivan show is beamed — the opera’s 
music is still copyrighted by the Puc- 
cini Estate, though in the U.S. it has 
achieved P.D. status.

store promotion of all Trio albums, 
including their latest, “Here We Go 
Again!” The merchandiser, function-

Additional in - store promotional 
items include a supplementary Kings- 
ton Trio display panel designed for 
use with album jackets of the Trio’s

All items are available from Capitol

Other October new releases for

Four Freshmen and Five Guitars.” 
Capitol’s new stereo version of “Kiss 
Me Kate” is prominently featured on 
a giant display piece incorporating 
cover art from eight other Capitol 
show albums. 

Disk jockey promotion this month 
centers about Capitol’s DJ preview 
album, containing a complete track 
from each album on the release; spe- 
cial 45-rpm excerpt recordings; bulk 
shipments of complete LP’s to Capi- 
tol distrib branches; and Capitol’s 
Popular Album Programming Service. 

Throughout the fall months, Capitol 
is continuing its program of wide- 
reaching national trade and consumer 
advertising. ‘Capitol’ - of - the - World 
albums will be featured in Holiday. 

Using the tactics just applied to 
Dinah Shore’s debut album on the 
label, Capitol is currently throwing 
its full promotional weight behind 
Kay Starr’s kick-off package, “Mov- 
in’.” 

Shortly after re-signing the song- 
stress, Capitol began a concentrated 
teaser campaign aimed at disk jockeys, 
dealers and the national press. The 
campaign slogan, “October 19th Is 
Movin’ Day,” was disseminated 
through dealer mailings, ads, stickers, 
news releases, etc. 

With the release of the album this 
week, Capitol is taking full-page Starr 
ads in trade mags. The album will 
also be featured in Capitol ads in 
various national consumer magazines. 

In a bid for heavy airplay, large 
quantities of the complete LP are 
being mailed to CRDC branches and 
independent distributors for redistrib- 
ution to DJ’s. In addition, a special 
promotional EP with two-color sleeve 
will be mailed to nearly every disk 
jockey in the United States. 

For in-store promotion, Capitol is 
providing a giant full-color blow-up 
of the album cover, plus a large sup- 
ply of album jackets and supplement- 
ary panel displays. Also available 
are dealer give-away stuffers. 

A special press-kit mailing — includ- 
ing biography, pictures, feature story 
and the complete LP — will be made 
to entertainment editors and major 
newspaper colmunists. 

Max K. Callison, vice president and 
national sales manager, Capitol Rec- 
ords Distributing Corp., has announced 
a deferred-billing plan applicable to 
all new Capitol albums on October 
and November release. 

Dealers may take advantage of the 
plan on new albums pui-chased be- 
tween Oct. 19 and Nov. 25. Fifty-per- 
cent payment is required on or before 
Dec. 10, the balance on January 10. 


New MGM Distributors 


NEW YORK — Charles Hasin, MGM 
Records sales manager, has appointed 
two new distributors. Roberts Record 
Distributors, 1906 Washington Ave., 
St. Louis, will handle the label in that 
city, while Record Sales Corp., 1070

tributor in the Memphis territory.

Victor Intros “Showcase Series" Of Stereo Singles 


NEW YORK— RCA Victor is re- 
leasing a new “Showcase Series” of 
stereo singles featuring “cream” rep- 
ertoire from top-selling stereo LP’s, 
it was announced by J. Y. Burgess, 
Jr., manager, commercial sales and 
merchandising department, RCA Vic- 
tor Records. 

All “Showcase Series” singles will 
be specially packaged with consumer 
appeal uppermost in mind. Each sin- 
gle will come in a four-color sleeve 
made of extra heavy paper for dura- 
bility and will include, on the reverse 
side of the sleeve, a four-color repro- 
duction of the cover of the album 
from which the two sides of the single 
are taken. In addition, the pictured 
album will be heavily plugged on the 
sleeve. All “Showcase Series” stereo 
singles will sell at the manufacturer’s 
nationally advertised price of 98 cents. 

Among the artists represented in 
the initial release are the Boston 
Pops, Mario Lanza, Morton Gould, 


Harry Belafonte, Bing Crosby, George 
Melachrino, Hugo Winterhalter and 
the Chicago Symphony. 

To help launch the new stereo 
“Showcase Series,” a traffic-stopping 
pre-pak counter display will be 
shipped by RCA Victor. The display 
is in full-color and contains an assort- 
ment of the first 18 selections to be 
released. Also shipping to distribu- 
tors will be a special streamer pro- 
moting the “Showcase Series.” 

“Our new stereo ‘Showcase Series’ 
singles,” Burgess said, “mark a bold 
new merchandising venture into the 
stereo singles market. The repertoire 
is RCA Victor’s best. The artists are 
the world’s greatest. And the packag- 
ing will be unique. The combination 
of all three makes our new ‘Showcase 
Series’ one of the most handsome and 
economic buys for the ever-growing 
group of consumers interested in 
stereo singles.” 


Atlantic Adds 8 Versions Capitol Records Promotes 
Of “High School U.S.A.” j oe Mathews 


NEW YORK — Atlantic Records’ 
“High School U. S. A.” by Tommy 
Facenda has become so popular in the 
twenty cities where it was released in 
the past two weeks, that eight addi- 
tional versions have been released, the 
diskery said last week. They are for 
the following cities and territories : 
Virginia, North & South Carolina, 
Florida, Nashville, New Orleans- 
Louisiana, Alabama-Georgia, Mem- 
phis and Texas. 

The gimmick in the record is that 
in the course of the song Facenda 
reels off the names of thirty or forty 
local high schools. For the giant 
state of Texas, Facenda squeezes in 
seventy. (Each of the records is the 
same; the names of the high schools 
were dubbed in over the master tape.) 

This first record by Facenda has 
made him a “hot” talent, an Atlantic 
exec commented, adding that he is 
much in demand at record shops and 
teenage shows throughout the coun- 
try. Facenda has just completed a 
tour that took him to Baltimore, 
Washington, Cleveland, Chicago, Cin- 
cinnati and St. Louis. 

On October 25 (Sunday) he was 
one of the many stars who aoneared 
at the big CT 0 rally at the Coliseum 
in New York. 


MGM Signs New Artists 


NEW YORK — MGM Records has 
signed a number of new artists for 
the MGM, Cub and Metro labels. 

Making his debut on the MGM label 
is Danny Valentino singing “Stam- 
pede” and “(You Gotta Be A) Music 
Man.” 

A1 Alberts, former lead of the Four 
Aces bows in with “Imagination” and 
“Handful Of Gold.” 

On the Cub label, Rocky Hart 
makes his debut with “Come With 
Me” b/w “Every Day,” while on the 
Metro label, a female vocal group 
known as The Dream Girls offer “I’m 
In Love With You” and “Crying In 
The Night.” 

MGM Records is preparing an ex- 
tensive build-up for these new artists 
and will put special emphasis on teen- 
age appeal particularly for Valentino 
and Hart, according to MGM promo- 
tion and publicity director Sol Hand- 
werger. 


Whitehall Inks Barbara Barry 


NEW YORK — Barbara Barry, for- 
mer Vincent Lopez ork thrush, has 
been inked to a disk deal with White- 
hall Records, the Westminster Rec- 
ords affiliate, it was revealed last 
week. Her first sides, “Sling To Me” 
and “We Love And Learn,” will be

dling her national promotion. 


NEW YORK — Joseph C. Mathews 
has been appointed to the newly- 
created post of executive staff assist- 
ant to Max K. Callison, vice president 
and national sales manager, Capitol 
Records Distributing Corp., Callison 
announced here last week. 

The elevation of Mathews, formerly 
pop-record promotion manager for 
CRDC, is “a result of the increasing 
importance in CRDC operations of 
the New York National Sales Office, 
the tremendous increase of activity is 
in the eastern market, and the expan- 
sion of CRDC branches,” Callison 
said. (CRDC now has 28 branches, 
seven independent distributors.) Cal- 
j lison also stated that, in his new posi- 
tion, Mathews would be shouldering a 
large part of the administrative work 
j load. 

A 10-year veteran with Capitol, 
j Mathews first joined CRDC in 1949 I 
as a sales representative in the Los 
Angeles Branch and in 1950 was 
made promotion representative for 
that branch. In June, 1954, Mathews 
was promoted to sales manager of i 
CRDC’s Jacksonville Branch (now 
Miami), and in January, 1955, be- ! 
came sales manager of 'the Detroit ! 
Branch. 

In May, 1956, Mathews switched 
I from sales to national promotion 
work, in various capacities, until his 
present promotion. 

Mathews, who has spent his entire 
career in the entertainment industry, 
will continue to headquarter in Capi- 
tol’s New York Executive Offices.

ident of American Recording Com-

gineers, has been appointed to head

president of HiFi Records, disclosed 
last week the appointment of Cy 
Kertman as vice-president in charge 
of sales. Kertman, a 15 year music

diately. He plans to meet with dis- 
tribs throughout the country to dis-

Geuset Eusit? 

NEW YORK — For the benefit of 
those having trouble understanding 
the “new” teen language, “Meus- 
surry” — heard on the Delicates disk- 
ing on Unart — the label offers the 
following explanation: 

1. Place eus after the first letter 
of every word; thus “kiss” becomes 
“keusiss.” 

2. If a word begins with two con- 
sonants, place eus after the conso- 
nants; thus “string” becomes “streus- 
ing.” 

3. If a word begins with a vowel, 
place eus before the word; thus “on” 
becomes “euson.”

Hanover On Squirrel Kick 


NEW YORK — Bob Thiele, Han- 
over-Signature prexy, has recently 
announced an extensive promotional 
campaign in connection with the Nut- 
ty Squirrels “Uh! Oh!,” which he 
claims will be the label’s first big hit. 

Promotional plans include road 
trips by Hanover execs, Irv Stimler 
and Buddy Robbins, as well as per- 
sonal appearances by the Nutty Squir- 
rels on such TV productions as the 
Dick Clark Show, Steve Allen Show, 
and the Alan Freed Show. 


Arwin Plans Singles Sked 


NEW YORK— Marty Melcher, Ar- 
win prexy, has announced that Joe 
Linhart, exec vp of all of Melcher’s 
musical enterprises, is scheduling six 
months of releases for the label. His 
plans include conferences with several 
well-known A&R men for possible Ar- 
win production work, as well as ne- 
gotiations with composers and lyri- 
cists with an eye to their exclusive 
services for his company. 


NARAS Disk Jockey Contest 


HOLLYWOOD, CAL. — The Na- 
tional Academy of Recording' Arts 
and Sciences is conducting a “Guess 
The Winners” contest among some 
4,000 disk jockeys throughout the 
country in connection with the forth- 
coming NARAS Grammy Awards in 
November, it was announced by Stan 
Richardson, executive director. 

All participating jockeys have re- 
ceived a list containing the five top 
nominations in each of the 34 cate- 
gories. The DJ’s are to guess the win- 
ners from the 1959 nominations and 
return their ballots directly to Has- 
kins & Sells in an enclosed self ad- 
dressed envelope. Entries closed mid- 
night, October 25, and Haskins & Sells 
will tabulate and anonunce the 
winners. 

First prize for the best guesses 
will he an all-expense-paid round-trip 
to Switzerland. There will be nine 
additional prizes of special Swiss 
watches to the runners-up, provided 
by the Watchmakers of Switzerland, 
sponsors of the November 29th 
Awards show. The telecast, scheduled 
to be aired at 8:00 P.M. over the NBC 
network, will feature Meredith Wil- 
son as M.C. plus the many top record- 
ing stars nominated for Grammies. 


U.N. Choir Bows 



NEW YORK— Andrew W. Cordier 
(left), executive assistant to the Sec- 
retary General of the United Nations, 
is presented with the first copy of 
“The United Nations Singers” album 
by Milton R. Rackmill, president of 
Decca Records. 

The album, a collection of folk 
songs from around the world sung in 
their native languages by a group 
comprised of Secretariat members of 
the U.N., was released last week by 
Coral, a Decca subsidiary, in conjunc- 
tion with the celebration of United 
Nations Day, Oct. 24. 

The “Singers” made a special ap- 
pearance at the Manhattan Savings 
Bank the day preceding U.N. Day, 
and received a visit from Mrs. Eleanor 
Roosevelt, a patron of the group, who 
was also presented with an advance 
copy of the album by their director, 
Donald Read. 

The vocal group is a unique one, 
as most of its members do not read 
music, and in many instances, lan- 
guage is a barrier. Their rehearsal 
time is at a minimum, for the pres- 
sures of their jobs prevent attend- 
ance, and the problem of being called 
out of the country often exists. They 
have made many appearances in the 
New York area, and have been seen 
and heard on network television, 
which in one instance was carried 
abroad. Radio and TV appearances 
are being planned in conjunction with 
the release of the album, time per- 
mitting. 

Plans have been formulated by 
Coral and the U.N. to sell the album 
in the various shops in the United 
Nations Building.

Capitol Intros Christmas Program 


HOLLYWOOD — Capitol Records 
has just released new Christmas al- 
bums by Fred Waring, & the Pennsyl- 
vanians, the Roger Wagner Chorale 
and Eddie Dunstedter. The diskery 
will also put promotional emphasis 
on its catalog of 18 other Yuletide 
LP’s plus various Xmas entries from 
the “Capitol”-of-the- World series. 

The 3 new issues are: “The Sounds 
Of Christmas” — Fred Waring & the 
Pennsylvanians; “Holy, Holy, Holy” 
— The Roger Wagner Chorale; “The 
Bells Of Christmas” — Eddie Dunsted- 
ter, organ. 

In conjunction with the release 
Capitol this month launches a national 
sales promotion campaign keyed to 
the theme, “For Any Occasion — The 
Gift Of Music.” 

Highlight of the campaign — which 
will carry through the Christmas sea- 
son — is a 16-page, full-color album 
catalog that will appear as a pull-out 
section of the deluxe, boxed Christ- 
mas edition of Esquire magazine, due 
to hit the stands in mid-November. 

The “Gift of Music” Christmas 
catalog is a condensed version of the 
48-page consumer catalog just an- 
nounced by Capitol for national dis- 
tribution through record stores this 
month. 

Heading up a variety of in-store 
display materials to bear the “Gift 
of Music” legend is a special, waist- 
high floor merchandiser similar to 
that introduced this month to promote 
Capitol’s catalog of Kingston Trio 
albums. The merchandiser holds up 
to 150 albums by means of four wire 
racks. 

In November, Capitol will make 
available to dealers a large metal 
Christmas-tree display designed to 
hold five Christmas album jackets. 
This, too, will bear the “Gift of 
Music” stamp. 

In addition, the gift theme will 
appear on all other Capitol point-of- 


May Renews Capitol Pact 


HOLLYWOOD — Composer-conduc- 
tor-arranger Billy May has renewed 
his exclusive, long-term recording- 
contract with Capitol Records. As has 
been the case for the past several 
years, May will record in the Capitol 
Tower studios in Hollywood under 
supervision of executive producer 
Dave Cavanaugh. 


High School Favorite 



CLEVELAND — Tommy Facenda, in 
this city recently promoting his in- 
I itial Atlantic disk, “High School 
U.S.A.,” which jumped into the No. 
60 spot on The Cash Box Top 100 
this week, visits (above) KYW disk 
jockeys Wally King (left) and Wes 
Hopkins (right). Below, while on 
Phil McLean’s WERE Bandstand 
show, he meets Harry Belafonte. 


sale display materials, monthly DJ 
albums, and a special DJ Christmas 
sampler containing complete tracks 
from Capitol’s new Christinas albums, 
as well as catalog Yule-season best- 
sellers. 

As a final element in the program, 
Capitol will furnish dealers with 
“Happy Holiday” wrappers to aid in 
gift-wrapping. 

A 100-per-cent exchange privilege 
will be extended to dealers on all 
Capitol-label Christmas recordings, 
both catalog items and new releases, 
singles and LP’s. The exchange privi- 
lege applies to recordings purchased 
between Oct. 19 through Dec. 24, 
1959. Extended-play recordings are 
not included. 

Announcement of the plan was made 
by Max Iv. Callison, vice president 
and national sales manager, Capitol 
Records Distributing Corp., who said 
that no qualifying orders are required, 
and selections included in the pro- 
gram may be exchanged on a dollar- 
value basis for any Capitol or Angel | 
recordings. 

In making the announcement, Cal- 
lison pointed out that purchases made 
under this program will not be in- 
cluded under Capitol’s regular 10-per- 
cent exchange program nor may they 
be applied as purchases under any 
other CRDC program. 

Of the recordings to which the 
terms apply, all but four are available 
in unlimited quantities. Four ‘Capitol’- 
of -the- World albums — “Christmas In 
Cuba”, “Christmas In Portugal”, 
“Christmas In Australia” and “Christ- 
mas In Brazil” — are available to 
dealers on a first-come, first-served 
basis. 

A special Christmas check-list, in- 
dicating all albums available under 
the 100-per-cent exchange plan, is 
being mailed to dealers this week. 

Chancellor Moves To 
Larger Quarters 


PHILADELPHIA— Chancellor Rec- 
ords will move to larger quarters at 
1320 Vine Street, this citv effective 
first week in November. The organi- 
zation, which also includes managing 
branch M. D. B. Enterprises and 
Debmar and Rambed music publishing 
firms, was formerly located in the

According to Peter Gerardi, secre- 
tary of Chancellor, the move is part 
of a general expansion program. 
“With Frankie Avalon and Fabian 
rounding out their entertainment 
careers with movie contracts,” said 
Gerardi, “our organization has to 
spread out to keep pace with them.” 
Right now, he revealed, plans are in 
the wind to add a TV production unit 
to the organization.

George Elrick, Personal Manager for many well established recording- 
stars (including Mantovani on Decca, Max Jaffa on Columbia and Ed mini do 
Ros oil Decca — big seller in the States, John Hanson on Oriole and TV 
personality Sylvia Peters) is very excited about his latest protege, Maureen 
Evans, attractive 19-year old singer whom he discovered when visiting her 
home town of Cardiff. After two months’ extensive grooming George took 
her along to see Morris Levy, Director of Oriole Records who immediately 
put her under contract. This week I went along to Oriole studios to sit in 
on her first recording session. Two singles were waxed, “Don’t Want The 
Moonlight” and “The Years Between”. The backing was supplied by a 
12-piece orchestra led by Gordon Franks with a string section made up of 8 
hand picked leaders. Oriole A & R man Reg Warburton and Studio Director 
Jacques Levy took the session. 

The history of the Oriole Recording Company can be traced back as far as 
1903 when Jack Levy, father of the present Director, Morris Levy, made his 
first cylinder record. In 1912 Levy Snr. opened the first music and record 
shop in London’s East End. Here, in 1915, he was joined by his son, Morris. 
Into this shop ultimately came many of the pioneers of the day including 
Jack Payne, Geraldo, Ambrose and Roy Fox. In the early days when there 
were no restrictions on the importation of records from the United States, 
Morris Levy was responsible for the first A1 Jolson records to be made avail- 
able in this country. These were specially pressed for him. At this time Levy 
also brought over the early Duke Ellington, Fats Waller, Louis Armstrong, 
Boyd Center, Marion Young, Lizzie Miles and Marion Harris disks including 
a host of R & B recordings. The first records to be issued on the Oriole label 
as it is known today were taken from American masters in the 1920s and in- 
cluded such names as Ukulele Ike, Adelaide Hall, Jelly Roll Morton and 
later Django Reinhart from which it can be seen that Levy played a great 
part in fostering the jazz invasion in this country. With the growth of the 
Oriole label Levy expanded still further and became the pioneer of private 
recordings in Great Britain by opening the first studio of its kind in 1931 
in Regent Street, London. Here also were recorded the first commercials for 
Radio Luxembourg. In 1945 Oriole further extended by opening their own 
factory for manufacturing their own records, thus becoming completely in- 
dependent and they remain so to this day. 

* * * * * 

Another independent British company, Delyse Records gave a party at 
their London headquarters to launch their latest recording “Christmas with 
David Hughes”. David Hughes is well known in this country as a ‘pop’ singer 
and this recording, his first on the Delyse label, gives him the opportunity of 
recording the sort of material he likes. Tracks include “Away In A Manger”, 
“God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen”, “Ave Maria” and “The Coventry Carol”. 
David is accompanied by the voices of the Morgan Jones Singers and Orches- 
tra conducted by Douglas Gamley.

Sydney Bron, Director of Bron Associated Music Publishing Company has 
just formed two new Anglo-American companies over here. Spanka Music 
Ltd. and Debmar Music Publishing Co. Ltd. The former will publish over 
here the complete catalogue of Spanka Music Ltd. in New York consisting 
in the main of Paul Anka compositions and recordings, and with “Lonely 
Boy” currently high in the British charts both record and sheet music wise, 
they have already got away to a spanking start. As far as Debmar is con- 
cerned the parent company in the States is extremely active; in addition to 
being a comprehensive publishing outfit they also control Chancellor Records, 
a label that has rocketed to prominence in the past two years with such 
outstandingly successful contract artists as Frankie Avalon and Fabian. 
Debmar will handle almost all the Avalon and Fabian songs in this country. 
With Avalon’s “Just Ask Your Heart” still in “The Cash Box” Top Twenty, 
Debmar is confident that this song’s British release on the H.M.V. Label 
their number one song will be a number one hit.

Fred Jackson, Boss of Planetary-Kahl Music is convinced that the new 
Craig Douglas “The Riddle of Love” just released on Top Rank backed with 
“Wish You Were Mine” will be a winner on the record and sheet music sales. 
Jackson has also secured for Planetary-Kahl the new English version of 
“Danny Boy”, the Conway Twitty hit which was banned over here. Twitty 
has written new lyrics and the record will shortly be released over here on 
the M.G.M. label under the title “Rosaleena”. 

From Paul Cave, Manager for Frankie Vaughan, comes news that his 
fabulously successful season at The Dunes Hotel, Las Vegas has been extended 
by two weeks to November 4th. Frankie then flies to New York on the 6th 
for a “Perry Como Show” on the 11th followed by a “Dinah Shore Show” 
on December 20th in Los Angeles on a nation wide TV network. Negotiations 
are going ahead for a “Jimmy Durante Spectacular” on December 6th. Paul 
Cave has arranged for Frankie to return to Las Vegas for a ten or possibly 
twelve week season next summer. The King Brothers, also managed by Cave, 
will be going with him. The King Brothers with Ronnie Carroll recently 
represented Great Britain at a big NATO concert in Cologne. Other countries 
represented included Germany, France and Holland. The programme was 
recorded and will be broadcast to all NATO countries. 

Arnold Klein, Manager, Record Sales and Merchandising (Europe) Radio 
Corporation of America, R.C.A. International Division flew to Paris for a 
one day conference with A.R.E.A. Licencee Distributors for France and ter- 
ritories, who have lately enjoyed fantastic success with the “Josephine Baker 
at the Olympia” record which they have produced for R.C.A. Klein has also 

visited distributors and factors in Ireland and on the 19th October left for 

a conference m Scandinavia to discuss plans for production and output in 
the fall. From there he goes to Austria, Germany and Italy returning to 
London mid November. 

Cy Leslie, President of Pickwick Sales, merchandising arm for Design, 
Stereo .Spectrum, Cricket, “Instant Learning” and Off Broadway Records 
looked in at The Cash Box office during his two-day stop en route for a 

three and a half week visit to 14 Continental cities.' Leslie states that the 

record industry in this country is in for some great changes with the increas- 
ing popularity of the lower priced L.P.s. 

Following his recent successful American tour Johnny Dankworth signed 
a recording contract for American Roulette label. Negotiations were 
between Morris Levy of Roulette and London Impressario Harold Davison. 

“The Enchanted Sea” by The Islanders currently climbing “The Cash Box” 
charts will be released over here on the 30th October on the Top Rank label.

E.M.I. Launches 
“Sound Selling” 

LONDON, ENG. — The most 
interesting idea of the week comes 
from the E.M.I. Group which threw 
a party at London’s Washington Hotel 
earlier this week to launch their new 
advance in the technique of selling- 
recorded entertainment. “Sound Sell- 
ing” with the slogan Today’s Ap- 
proach to Tomorrow’s Business’ is an 
exclusive E.M.I. service enabling 
buyers, sales staff, executives and the 
press to get new and unique up-to- 
date information on all L.P. releases 
on H.M.V., Capitol, Columbia, Parlo- 
phone, M.G.M., Mercury and Emarcy 
labels. This first demonstration in 
London is to be followed by regular 
presentations in centres throughout 
the country including Glasgow, Birm- 
ingham, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Bristol 
and Manchester. 

Ronald White, Assistant General 
Manager of E.M.I. made the opening 
speech. The idea was first put for- 
ward by Arthur Muxlow, Sales Man- 
ager for Capitol to promote the re- 
leases on his own label. However, the 
Directors of E.M.I. felt that the idea 
had such an enormous potential that 
the scheme should be extended to 
embrace all the companies under the 
E.M.I. banner. 

“Sound Selling” is the title given 
to two hours audio and visual presen- 
tation enabling one to listen to ex- 
tracts from some 70 records and, at 
the same time, see the new sleeves 
and record details in full colour on the 
screen. Releases from the various la- 
bels are introduced by the respective 
sales managers, interspersed with 
crisp informative sales talk. The rec- 
ord dealers attending these meetings 
are supplied with printed forms giv- 
ing the record number and title on 
which they can make remarks as a 
guide to ordering. 

More Radio Stations 
In England? 

LONDON, ENG. — In June 1962 the 
present B.B.C. charter expires and al- 
ready rumors are in oi’bit that Par- 
liament will think hard before restor- 
ing a complete monopoly. There are 
in fact movements more concrete than 
rumor: several independent broad- 

casting companies have been formed, 
convinced they will get broadcasting 
licenses. Thus commercial radio may 
be born in Britain and the problem 
of its impact and usage will require 
study by P.O.A. Members. Norman 
Collins of Associated Television heads 
one of the firms in question. A num- 
ber of town councils are said to be 
also interested in establishing their 
own regional stations. Another prob- 
able starter is Capt. Plugge, with 
whose commercial programmes from 
Luxembourg, listeners in this country 
are familiar. It is said that the inten- 
tion of political ‘lobbyists’ is to con- 
centrate on persuading Parliament to 
establish commercial radio on the 
small-region pattern of the U.S. If 
they succeed, there could be up to a 
hundred stations spread over the Brit- 
ish Isles, each catering for both na- 
tional and local advertisers. In the 
larger cities there may be central 
studios ‘piping’ streamlined program- 
mes. Disk manufacturers should be 
among the largest buyers of time.

GERMANY 




On October 16th and 17th the festive dedication of the rebuilt works of the 
Electrola Company and the Carl Lindstrom Company was held in Koln. More 
about this in next week’s column, but something about the development of this 
record firm. Electrola and Carl Lindstrom are members of the Electric and 
Musical Industries (E.M.I.), the greatest trust in the world which takes in 24 
countries. Seven years ago Electrola Company and Carl Londstrom Company 
founded their new home in Koln. Today it is one of Europe’s greatest record 
firms. Today Electrola is, with its great system in Koln, and its big studios 
in Berlin and Koln, and last but not least the 15 business offices in West Ger- 
many, one of the greatest German organizations. Together with its 23 sister 
companies and all important countries of the free world within the E.M.I. trust 
it is quite an organization. 

Since 1952 the turnover of the year was doubled. Production and sale of 
long play records was raised 36% this year. The labels of Electrola are, “His 
Master’s Voice,” “Columbia,” “Odeon,” “Mercury,” “Imperial.” The whole 
catalog embraces more than four thousand records. In the storehouse of the 
ASDA (Auslandssonderdienst) are more than 50,000 special records. Today 
Electrola has a capacity of more than 20 million records a year. 

A good chance of becoming the Autumn hit in Germany is the American 
“The Three Bells,” by the hillbilly group, The Browns. Lys Assia, who was 
very successful in Germany with the original of “The Three Bells” called at 
that time, “Wenn die Glocken hell Erklingen” on Telefunken. Perhaps this 
time will have a real chance to break out again after 14 years. 

Ariola has great hopes in Carla Codevilla, the young singer who was born 
in Mailand and who established a vocal trio with her sisters. She began her 
career as a soloist in the casinos of San Remo, Monte Carlo and Cannes. Carla 
appeared for the first time on television in Hamburg. She is nearly as inter- 
national as her great colleague Caterina Valente, for she also sings in English, 
French, Portuguese and German. Her first titles on Ariola are, “Einsam sind 
alle Strassen” and “Wenn du bei mir bist.” 

We hear that Hollywood is now planning to make a film based on the song, 
“Morgen.” 

Freddy Quinn was awarded the “Goldenen Lowen” of Radio Luxemburg for 
his record, “Die Gitarre und Das Meer.” The James Brothers, for their song, 
“Cowboy Billy” were awarded the “Silbernen Lowen.” The official presentations 
will be made on November 17th in Wiesbaden when the Deutsche Schlager 
Festival will be going on. 

Polydor announces a new Peter Kraus release for its October program. 
They are, “Ich bin ja so allein” (a version of “Lonely Boy”) and “Tiger.” 
Teenagers as film fans are also looking forward to film star Horst Buchholz’ 
first songs titled, “Mylene” and “Namenlos.”

Am 16. und 17. Oktober fand die festliche Einweihung des wiederaufge- 
bauten Werkes der Eleetrola-Gesellschaft und der Carl Lindstrom Gesellschaft 
in Koln statt. Uber die Einweihung selbst wird der Korrespondent in seinem 
nachsten Bericht -schreiben. Hier zunachst einiges fiber die Entwicklung und 
den Umfang dieser Schallplatten-Firma: Electrola und Carl Lindstrom sind 
Glieder der Electric Musical Industries (E.M.I.), des grossten Schallplatten- 
konzerns der Welt, der insgesamt 24 Lander umfasst. Vor sieben Jahren haben 
die Electrola Gesellschaft und die mit ihr verbundene Carl Lindstrom Gesell- 
schaft in Koln ihre neue Heimat gefunden. In diesen sieben Jahren ist eine 
der modernsten Schallplatten-Fabriken Europas entstanden. Heute ist die 
Electrola mit ihren Fabrikanlagen in Koln, den grossen Aufnahmestudios in 
Berlin und Koln und nicht zuletzt den 15 Geschaftsstallen in der Bundesrepublik 
eine der grossten deutsehen Organisationen, die mit ihren 23 Schwester- 
Gesellsehaften in alien wichtigen Landern der freien Welt im Rahmen des 
E.M.I. Konzerns ebenfalls eine der grossten Schallplatten-Organisationen der 
Welt. Seit 1952 wurde der Jahresumsatz mehr als verzehnfacht. Produktion 
and Vei’kauf von Langspielplatten wurde in diesem Jahr gegenfiber 1958 urn 
36 Prozent gesteigert. Die 15 Geschaftsstellen der Eleetrola-Gesellschaft 
belief em in West-Deutschland den Fachhandel mit dem gesamten Repertoire 
der Marken Electrola, His Master’s Voice, Columbia, Odeon, Mercury, Imperial. 
Der Gesamtkatalog umfasst mehr als 4000 Schallplatten. Im ASD-Lager 
(Auslandssonderdienst) befinden sich fiber 50.000 Spezial-Platten ffir Liebhaber. 
Heute erreicht Electrola eine jahrliche Kapazitat von 20 Millionen Schall- 
platten. 

Gute Chancen, der Schlager des Spat-Sommers zu werden, hat der ameri- 
kanische Aussenseiter-Hit “The Three Bells.” Die Original-Platte mit dem in 
Deutschland wenig bekannten Hillbilly-Trio “The Browns” ist vor kurzem auf 
dem deutsehen Plattenmarkt erschienen. Lys Assia, die “Lady der Schall- 
platte,” hat des Lied, das nach 1945 in Deutschland unter dem Titel “Wenn die 
Glocken hell erklingen” grossen Erfolg hatte, aut Telefunken neu aufgenom- 
men. Vielleicht hat es auch nach 14 Jahren den gleichen Erfolg? 

Grosse Hoffnung setzt Ariola auf die junge Carla Codevilla. Sie wurde in 
Mailand geboren und bildete mit ihren Schwestern einVoval-Trio. Spater 
begann sie ihre Karriere als Solistin in den Casinos von San Remo, Monte 
Carlo und Cannes. In Hamburg stand Carla zum ersten Mai in einer Show 
vor der Fernsehkamera. Sie singt fast ebenso international wie ihre gi-osse 
Kollegin Caterina Valente, namlich in englischer, franzosischer, portugiesischer 
und neuerdings auch deutscher Sprache. Ihre ersten Titel auf Ariola heissen: 
“Einsam sind alle Strassen” und “Wenn du bei mir bist.” 

Und hier das Neueste fiber Ivo Robic: Nachdem er nach Amerika flog, um 
sich in der Perry-Como-Show vorzustellen, plant nun Hollywood einen Film um 
und fiber sein Lied “Morgen.” 

Den “Goldenen Lowen” von Radio Luxemburg erhielt Freddy Quinn ffir 
seine Platte: “Die Gitarre und das Meer.” Den “Silbernen Lowen” bekamen 
die James Brothers ffir “Cobwoy-Billy.” Die offizielle Verleihung findet im 
Rahmen des “Deutsehen Schlager-Festivals 1959” in Wiesbaden statt. 

Polydor kfindigt in seinem Oktober-Programm unter anderem folgende 
Neuaufnahmen an: Peter Kraus: “Ich bin ja so allein” und “Tiger,” ausserdem 
die mit Spannung erwarteten ersten Lieder des Filmstars Horst Buchholz: 
“Mylene” und “Namenlos.”

REMEI UY 




Some days ago Holland was visited by Raoul Poliakin, musical director 
of the Everest Record Company in the United States. Poliakin had a very 
long interview with Harry Jansen, President of the Dutch Delahay Record 
Company, the firm that imports, among others, Everest and Top Rank. 
The musical director held a conversation about the classical repertoire, 
especially the production for Western Europe. Raoul Poliakin attended a con- 
cert of the Hague Residentie Orchestra, directed by the famous Dutch con- 
ductor, Willem van Otterloo, and he has spoken with the two well known 
Dutch violists, Theo Olof and Herman Krebbers. Now Poliakin has left our 
country to visit England to hear the London Symphony Orchestra and to 
make a recording of that orchestra. 

The Dutch small artist, low comedian, filmer, singer, etc., etc., (to compare 
with the American Victor Borge) has made his first play-film, “Moutarde 
Van Sonansee”. On October 23rd the film will make it’s premier in all great 
Dutch theaters. In the Benelux countries the sound track recording of the 
film (with songs of Toon Hermans himself) will be issued on His Master’s 
Voice, one of the labels of the active L. C. Bovema, Heemstede. The film 
as well as the record seems to be a great success and to be of international 
reputation. 

Next week G. M. Oord, Jr., director of L. C. Bovema (with Labels Capitol, 
English Columbia, Roulette, Imperial, MGM and His Master’s Voice) will 
open the new Bovema recording studio at Heemstede. The studio is extremely 
modern and unique for the Benelux countries and built according to the latest 
sound technique and architecture. Now the Dutch Bovema artists can make 
their records in their own studio. 

Disk jockey Pete Felleman, Jr. has returned to the radio with a music 
program for the commercial Luxembourg Broadcasting Corporation, sponsored 
by Willem II Cigars Company. Felleman made his come-back with a very 
good program of light music, one of the best in the Benelux countries. Some 
years ago Felleman had to leave the radio business because his music 
programs were too commercial and the Dutch Broadcasting Company do not 
have commercial programs. This is against the law. 

The Talent scouts Jan de Winter and Nico Boer, of the L. C. Phonogram, 
Amsterdam (with labels Philips, American Columbia, English Decca, Fontana, 
London and Durium) have discovered promising singer Annelies De Graaf 
(15 years old). She sings her own repertoire and the first records (Philips) 
of Annelies is, “Mr. Music” and “Sing, Sing, Sing.” 

The leader and clarinet soloist of the well known Dutch Swing College 
Band, Peter Schilperoort, has a good reputation with his own recording com- 
bination, because he plays many commercial tunes in jazz arrangements, 
such as the international toppers, “Piove” and “Morgen” (One More Sunrise). 
The tunes are available in the Benelux countries on the label Fontana of 
the Limited Corp. Phonogram. 


Benelux Top Ten 


1. Sweetheart, My Darling, Mijn Schat (Decca, Caterina Valente) 

2. Zeg Niet Nee (Decca, The Fouryo’s) 

3. Personality (Artone, Lloyd Price) 

4. Marina (Delahay, Rocco Granata)

CARMEN VILLANI 


15-year-old singer Carmen Viliam, this year won the competition “Voci 
nuove” at Castrocaro. I personally attended the recording of her first song for 
Bluebell, to whom she is contracted for three years. Bluebell sells the hit songs 
of Frankie Avalon, Fabian, James Darren and Joe Damiano. 

On October 10th in the Zurich Kongresshaus the 3rd Festival of Italian 
Songs took place and was transmitted by Eurovision for the first time this year. 
The receiving countries were Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Italy, 
Holland and Sweden. Tonina Torrielli, Gino Latilla, Edda Montanari, Achille 
Togliani and Poker di voci accompanied by William 
Galassini’s Orchestra sang the ten Italian songs. Out 
of ten, four were sung in German by the Swiss singer 
Lys Assia, three in French by Fausto Cigliano and 
three in English by the American singer Carrol Danell 
and Van Wood’s Orchestra. Domenico Modugno took 
part in the show but out of the competition. The public 
was mostly Italian. The Zurich Festival Singers and 
Orchestras work for the Fonit-Cetra records firm, all 
except Lys Assia and Poker di voci. 

The London Palladium has engaged Italian singer 
Flo Sandons who records for Durium. She will appear 
on the BBC and British telescreens. Adriano Celen- 
tano, who works for the Durium Records firm, will 
begin his military service next November. The golden 
plates offered by “II Disco” to the best singers of the 
year have been won by Mina (Italdisc); Celentano 
(Jolly) ; Carmen Villani (Bluebell) ; Guidone (Durium) ; 
J. Fontana (Hollywood); Ambra Massimo (Hollywood). Umberto Bindi belongs 
to the youngest generation in the world of music, and his songs and composi- 
tions have become very successful. After the encouraging success of his song 
“Arrivederci” people ask themselves, “Is he going to dethrone Modugno ?” 

Last June, during the Italian Song Festival in Paris, which was held in 
Palais Chaillot, the well known writer, Paul Claudel, congratulated him say- 
ing, “Your songs are good, but if you sing them they are even better.” He 
made his first appearance on Italian TV on the evening of July the 9th, 1959, 
with his song “Arrivederci.” At present Bindi is preparing the music of the 
song he is going to send to the San Remo Festival. The words will be written 
by Calabrese, who wrote “Arrivederci.” Bindi has an exclusive contract with 
Ricordi Records. His first extended play under Ricordi 
label comprises four of his songs, including “Arrive- 
derci,” “Nuvola per due,” “Odio amare te.” 

The famous trumpet player, Chet Baker, was in 
Milan for several days for recording engagements. 

Celentano, who has recently had a serious car acci- 
dent, has just been released from the hospital. This 
singer, who gained his fame because of his convulsive 
and screaming songs, has been re-baptized “Molleg- 
giato.” He records for Verve. 

Carosone met his companions for the last time to 
take part in a picture called “Caravan Patrol.” 

The Mediterranean Song Festival took place in Bar- 
celona and ended with Claudio Villa’s winning song, 
“Binario.” Nilla Pizzi, Walter Torrebruno, Nella Co- 
lombo and Nello Segurini’s Orchestra took part in the 
Festival. 

In February The Kingston Trio will tour Europe 
and will probably appear in the Italian theatres. 

Luciano Tajoli, at the end of the tour of his “Radio Circus Show,” has left 
for Australia, where he will appear in a series of musical shows. 

On October 14th, singer Tony Dallara, who records for Music label, received 
the “Disco d’Oro” for the sale of his millionth record. Dallara sang two of his 
latest songs, “Ghiaccio Beollente,” “Non Passa piu,” and they dedicated his 
song “Piove” to his friend Modugno. 

At the beginning of November, Cy Leslie, President of Pickwick Sales, 
merchandising arm for Design, Stereo Spectrum, Off Broadway, Cricket and 
Instant learning- records, will arrive in Milan.

Big Show promoter Lee Gordon has thrown the whole works into his 
Fabian show which kicked off in Brisbane, Queensland last night (15th 
October). Fabian received the biggest promotion campaign ever given to 
an American popular star visiting this country. The overall press coverage 
was absolutely fantastic in size and variety. It was practically impossible to 
read any publication without coming across an article on Fabian. On the 
same bill are leading Australian acts Col Joye, Frankie Davidson, Johnny 
Rebb, The Delltones, Johnny Devlin, Malcolm Arthur, Johnny O’Keefe (his 
final show before leaving for USA), Daryl Cashmore, The Moontones, Bill 
Owen and The Thunderbirds. Popular young Dig Richards, 
the Sydney star, was to have been in the line-up but he 
was seriously injured in an auto accident when his car 
collided with a truck on the Sydney Harbour Bridge. He 
has a dislocated hip and facial abrasions and is expected 
to be “off-stage” for at least three months.

The industry throughout Australia is mourning the 
death of topline radio compere Jack Davey, who died in 
Sydney last Wednesday (13th October) at the age of 
forty-nine. Jack Davey was a pioneer in audience parti- 
cipation radio shows in this country. At his peak Davey 
was the highest paid radio personality in Australia, with 
a series of network shows for big sponsors. He died as 
the result of a heart attack following a recurrence of 
hepatitis which he contracted after a lung operation last 
July. He is being mourned by countless thousands of 
loyal fans.

Late News: Fabian said that he was absolutely staggered by the riotous 
welcome he received when he arrived in Sydney yesterday, when about 3,000 
frantic teenagers swarmed over his car in George Street. Police were forced 
to take strong action to control the situation. They would not allow Fabian 
to appear in person at Nicholson’s Music Store which was jammed with excited 
fans. The over enthusiastic youngsters broke the huge plate glass windows 
of Nicholson’s and also caused extensive damage inside the store. When 
Fabian’s car stopped outside the store, as the situation was looking so uncon- 
trolled to the police, they made the car move on. This action wasn’t well 
received by the crowd as many of them had waited hours for Fabian to 
arrive at the store.

lesian region of Poland. The company 
has been greeted with enthusiasm by 
audiences in Berlin, Brussels and

Columbia Joins MRIA 


SUNNYVALE, CALIF. — Columbia 
Records has become a member of the 
Magnetic Recording Industry Asso- 
ciation, it was announced today by 
Herbert L. Brown, president of the 
industry group. 

The announcement followed accept- 
ance of Columbia and C. K. Williams 
& Co., of Easton, Pa., as members at 
the quarterly meeting of the MRIA 
board of directors in New York City 
earlier this month. 

“Columbia’s membership in MRIA 
is a clear indication by this major 
record company of just how strongly 
it feels about the future of music on 
magnetic tape,” Brown said. 

“MRIA welcomes Columbia for we 
feel we will gain from this close rela- 
tionship just as Columbia will gain 
from the association with the almost 
half a hundred member companies 
who have brought the magnetic tape 
industry to its present position of 
strength and acceptance by the con- 
sumer public.” 

There are now forty-six members of 
MRIA representing all facets of the 
magnetic recording industry associ- 
ation.

Mercury Skeds “Wagon Train” LP For Dec. 


CHICAGO — “Wagon Train,” the 
Ward Bond-Robert Horton TVer which 
for three years has kept a steady 
course across the top of the ratings 
will be making an appearance on Mer- 
cury Records. Conducted by Stanley 
Wilson, music director for Revue Pro- 
ductions, the album of original back- 
ground music from the series has 
been tentatively slated by Mercury 
for a December release. With an esti- 
mated 55-million viewers weekly, and 
characterized by a current Look Mag 
article as “TV’s Richest Western,” 
this NBC-TV series was one of the 
first to use an original musical score 
for each episode. Musical director 
Wilson, who has scored more than a 
hundred feature length motion-pic- 
tures, has composed much of the back- 
ground music. “We’ve tried to stay 
away from the cliche ‘Western Horse- 
Opera type’ Music,” he said, “and 
we’ve been fortunate in securing some 
of the most imaginative composers — 
names which have become familiar 
through their excellent work on Acad- 
emy Award Films — to create the music 
for the various episodes.” Among 
them are: Jerome Moross, Johnny 
Williams, Leo Shuken, Jack Hayes, 
David Buttolph, Laurindo Almedia, 
David Raskin, Cyril Mockridge and 
Roy Webb. 

Selections included in the “Wagon 
Train” album are: “Wagons Ho’,” 
“Jumpin’ Jack Rabbit” (from “Kitty 
Angel,”) “Colleen” (from “Jose Maria 
Moran”), “Chuck Wooster” (from 
“Chuck Wooster Story”), “Sirocco” 
(from “Juan Ortega Story”), “My 
Indian Brother” (from “Biji Wilcox 
Story”), “Vivian” (from “Vivian 
Carter Story”), “Golden West” (from 
“Jenny Tannen Story”), “Tomorrow” 
(from “Jenny Tannen Story”) , 
“Share My Fire” (from “Rodney 
Lawrence Story”), “Night Shadows” 
(from “Jennifer Churchill”), “La- 
mento” (from “Conchita Vasquez”) 
and the closing theme (“Wagons 
Ho’”). 

“Wagon Train” is the third TV 
themer for Mercury, others being 
“The Music from Richard Diamond” 
by Pete Rugolo, who composes and 
conducts the music for the David 
Jannsen series; and Ralph Materie’s 
“Music for a Private Eye,” contain- 
ing themes from “Peter Gunn,” “The 
Thin Man”, “Perry Mason,” “M 
Squad” and others.

Music Business Shocked 
By Death Of Buzzell 






To follow will be an album of orig- 
inal background music from “Shot- 
gun Slade,” a new MCA production 
starring Scott Brady soon to debut 
on a national scale. 


NEW YORK — Three of RCA Vic- 
tor’s high-riding young pop recording- 
artists — Neil Sedaka, Johnny Restivo 
and Ray Peterson — whose singles have 
been making it big in this country, 
are also making it big on the inter- 
national scene, it was reported by 
R. L. Broderick, manager, record ex- 
port and marketing. 

Making the charts throughout 
Europe, said Broderick, is Sedaka’s 
“I Go Ape”, while Restivo’s “Ya Ya” 
is currently the number one best- 
seller for RCA Victor’s Italian affili- 
ate. “Ya Ya” is also reportedly re- 
cording big sales in Germany. 

Across the Channel, Ray Peterson’s 
hit single, “The Wonder Of You,” is 
moving fast in England, according 
to Broderick. 


Broderick reports the three singers 
are duplicating their success in the 
Far East as well, especially in Au- 
stralia and Japan. 


NEW YORK — The music trade 
was shocked last week at the untimely 
passing of publisher Loring Buzzell 
at 31. Buzzell died of a heart attack 
at his home, here, on Tuesday, Oc- 
tober 20. Funeral services were held 
at the Universal Funeral Chapel, this 
city. 

At the time of his death, Buzzell 
was president of the firm he formed 
in 1957 with producer Harold Hecht 
and actor Burt Lancaster: Hecht, 

Lancaster & Buzzell. Prior to his as- 
sociation with Hecht and Lancaster, 
Buzzell worked for ASCAP, Mills 
Music and Cromwell Music. He wed 
singer Lu Ann Simms in 1954. 

Surviving, in addition to Miss 
Simms, are a daughter, Cynthia 
Leigh; his parents, Mr. and Mrs. 
Samuel J. Buzzell and two sisters, 
Mrs. Harold Hecht and Mrs. Eugene 
S. Stein. His uncle is director Eddie 
Buzzell.

Dealers Back Audio Fidelity 


London Records’ Sales Up 44 % 


NEW YORK — The nation’s record j 
dealers are solidly behind Sid Frey j 
of Audio Fidelity Records if the 
overwhelming response Frey has re- 
ceived since the United States De- 
partment of Justice accused his firm 
of prohibiting transshipping and at- 
tempting to fix prices, is any indica- 
tion of the national retailer picture. 

The United States Department of 
Justice has accused Audio Fidelity 
of unreasonable restraint of trade. 

Ever since the announcement of 
the accusation was made, letters ex- 
pressing sympathetic concern have 
been pouring in from cities large 
and small, all across the country, all 
from record retailers, asking Frey, 
president of Audio Fidelity, how the 
dealer can help Audio Fidelity. 

One retailer in the Bronx, N. Y. 
wrote: “It is heartwarming to hear 
someone speak in favor of the record 
dealers. All of the record dealers all 
over the United States are with you 
in your ideas. If the Government feels 
that your method of running your 
business is unfair, whoever that per- 
son or persons may be, should be ex- 
amined by a psychiatrist.” 

From a retailer in Cheyenne, Wyo- 
ming came the statement: “It seems 
unfair that in this day of tremen- 
dous competition any company would 
be challenged for attempting to up- 
hold a sense of fairness. It is ridicu- 
lous to think that a record company 
could exist today if their policies 
were restraining to the trade.” 

From a dealer in Denver: “We 
have always felt that your company 
has protected us, the record dealer. 
... We sincerely hope you succeed 
and continue to give us a profitable 
and high quality record line as you 


L.A. Distribs JoinS. F. Distribs 


SAN FRANCISCO — Representa- 
tives from six San Francisco distrib- 
utors met recently in Los Angeles at 
the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. Join- 
ing the San Francisco distributors 
were representatives from 14 Los An- 
geles record distributing companies. 

The meeting was held in Los An- 
geles to try to solicit the support of 
the L.A. distribs. Discussed at the 
meeting were the following topics: 
1. Transfer of lines and protection of 
distributor; 2. Credit interchange; 
3. Trans-shipment of merchandise 
out of territory. 

The San Francisco distributors won 
cooperation from the L. A. group as 
it was brought up how cooperation in 
the San Francisco area has led to j 
better business practices in the indus- 
try and has not hindered healthy com- 
petition. Concluding the San Fran- 
cisco meeting, headed by Bob Chatton, 
the meeting was turned over to the 
L. A. distributors who chose tempo- 
rary chairmen Jim Warren of Central 
Records Sales and Abe Diamond of 
Diamond Dist. Co.

A dealer in Deti-oit closed his let- 
ter with: “Good luck and God Bless 
you in this fight.” 

From Omaha, Nebraska: “We have 
always felt that you deal fairly with 
the dealers in every respect. It is our 
sincere hope that you will be success- 
ful in showing that . . . you have had 
the interest of the industry at heart, 
and that there is no just cause for 
complaint.” 

From Northridge, California: “We 
are 100% in accord with what your 
company stands for and especially for 
maintaining the stability in a mighty 
shaking industry from price struc- 
ture standpoint.” 

From Hermosa Beach, Calif.: 
“More power to you and your fine 
organization.” 

From Springfield, Mass.: “Please 
be assured that we will help you to 
the best of our limited means.” 

From Vineland, N. J.: “What you 
are doing is helping not only the 
local record shop, but the entire rec- 
ord industry.” 

From Washington, D. C.: “I know 
that all legitimate record merchants 
who operate a decent and ethical busi- 
ness are with you.” 

From a Los Angeles dealer: “It 
is only with actions such as you are 
taking, that the individual record re- 
tailer will eventually be able to 
exist.” 

Dealers from every nook and 
cranny of the U. S. had similar com- 
ments to make.

Omegatape To Issue 47 Pkgs 


HOLLYWOOD — Omegatape will 
release 47 tape packages for October- 
November, one of the largest releases 
ever to come from an independent

Laurindo Almeida. 

When making the release announce- 
ment, Omega executive vice-president 
David Hubert said: “The demand for 
4-track stereo tape has increased 
tremendously in the past two months 
and 2-track tape is now selling better 
than ever before. The only way to 
keep up with this growing market is 
through ‘whopping’ releases like this

ment Store. During a blockbuster 
three hour show centering around the 
package, Randall reportedly racked 
up almost 1500 phone orders. It was 
j reported that eight people were re- 
j quired at the station telephone switch- 
board to take orders. 

Other special promotions are being 
set up throughout the country to cash 
in on the issue.

“Now” Hear This 



NEW YORK— Fred Astaire has recently recorded his first album for Kapp 
Records. Titled ‘ Now,” the album contains mostly Astaire-associated tunes 
(i.6. Cheek to Cheek, ‘Top Hat, White Tie and Tails,” etc.) plus a new 
song-dance routine, “The Afterbeat” which Astaire will introduce on “An- 
other Evening With Fred Astaire” before the NBC-TV cameras this fall. 

The entertainer appears at his Kapp session; above left — during a more 
relaxed moment; above right — running through an arrangement with session 
head Pete King; below Astaire and King toss a few ideas back and forth. 


Aussies Mob Fabian 


NEW YORK — Thousands of enthu- 
siastic fans have mobbed Fabian 
during his current Austrialian tour 
with the Lee Gordon Troupe, it was 
reported last week. 

According to authorities in Mel- 
bourne and Sydney, the young singer- 
actor received one of the biggest 
welcomes given an American artist 
in Australia. Another reported first 
for Australian entertainment: all 

supporting acts are Australian. Previ- 
ously, American performers have been 
accompanied by a number of popular 
American artists, a spokesman said. 

When Fabian landed in Melbourne, 
some 2,000 teenagers broke through 
police barriers surrounding his plane, 
causing him to exit from the airport 
on the raised platform of a forklift 
truck. Officials had planned a taxi 
exit for Fabian, but when the crowds 
got out of hand, they removed him 
and his two manager from the emer- 
gency exit of the plane to the fork- 
lift platform, ten feet above the crowd, 
whisked him into a police car and out 
of the airport. 

At performance time in the Mel- 
bourne Arena, fans pressed so close 
for a glimpse of Fabian that a solid 
line of police couldn’t hold them back. 
Eight policemen finally had to carry 
Fabian above their heads to get him 
to the stage. 

In Sydney, during his personal 
appearance at a large record shop, 
Fabian fans turned out in large num- 
bers, breaking through police lines 
and causing a traffic snarl. 

Fabian wound up his Australian 
tour October 22, after which he flew 
to Hawaii for a few days. 


Capitol Tapes Kenton Show 
At Purdue Univ. Concerts 

LAFAYETTE, IND. — With a com- 
bined total of some 13,000 fans look- 
ing on, listening in, and taking part 
via their applause, Capitol Records 
last week taped a five-hour Purdue 
University concert by the Stan Kenton 
band, June Christy, and The Four 
Freshmen. 

The recording, made in the Univer- 
sity’s giant auditorium, will be re- 
leased as a deluxe, two-record pack- 
age in January, 1960. Title for the 
album is as yet undecided. 

The marathon recording- session 
was held in two parts, with an audi- 
ence of 6700 students on hand for 
each performance. First show began 
at 7:30 PM and ran until 9:30 PM, 
when the auditorium was emptied and 
a new crowd ushered in. At 10:00 
PM, the show was repeated, with sev- 
eral extra numbers thrown in to meet 
recording needs. The final take was 
completed at 1:00 AM. 

According to Bill Robinson, Capi- 
tol’s director of recording from Holly- 
wood, the Iventon-Christy-Freshmen 
sessions “were technically among the 
most difficult remotes we’ve ever 
handled.” Engineers from both the 
New York and Tower studios attended 
the sessions, which were supervised 
by Capitol A & R producers Lee 
Gillette and John Palladino. Also on 
hand was Ken Veeder, head of Capi- 
tol’s photographic department. Veeder 
obtained both color and black-and- 
white shots for use in design of the 
album cover and liner notes. 

The Purdue appearance was but one 
of over 40 concerts to be given by the 
Kenton - Christy - Freshmen combina- 
tion under the title. “T 1_ e Ftan ''“"-o" 
Show.” All three are exclusive Caiptol 
recording artists.

A! Lyons Named New 
Concertapes Gen. Mgr. 


CHICAGO — A1 Lyons, formerly an 
account executive with the transcrip- 
tion division of Columbia Records has 
been appointed General Manager of 
Concertapes, Wilmette, 111. Omega- 
tape affiliates include Concertapes and 
Concert-Disc. 


Lyons will direct Concertapes broad- 
ened distribution program, which is 
currently being set up to handle new 
folk music and jazz releases which 
Concertapes will offer in the near fu- 
ture. These are both new areas for 
Concertapes, which is currently lining 
up talent in both fields. Executives 
of Concertapes are in Europe working 
out reciprocal arrangements involving 
release of Concert-Disc and Concer- 
tapes’ material abroad, as well as 
picking up potential European ma- 
terial for state side release under the 


Concert Disc label. Under Lyons’ di- 
rection, several of Concert-Disc winter 
releases will be issued using a new 
type of color treatment on the covers, 
which consumer marketing tests have 
reportedly proven to have greatly in- 
creased eye appeal at the point-of- 
purchase level.

the S-F catalogue for the next two 
years. New releases will be in 2 and 
4 track and in cartridges. 

Bel Canto has added a second shift

on a sixteen hour day and additional 
warehouse facilities have been ac- 
quired in Los Angeles, Chicago and

HOUSTON — Don Robey, last week 
announced the release of a special 
“For Jocks Only” single taken frorr 
The Sensational Nightengales new LF 
“Songs Of Praise”. 

“This single,” Robey states, “is de- 
signed specifically for auditioning con- 
venience and will at the same time 
give jocks and their listeners a ‘sam- 
ple’ of the great religious etchings to 
be found and ‘felt’ in this magnificent 
new spiritual LP.” 

“There are eight new selections 
(Nightengales’ specials),” Robey con- 
tinued, “in this album; the other four 
(total of twelve) are former hit re- 
cordings by this internationally fa- 
mous group.” 

“The Sensational Nightengales,” 
Robey concluded, “is certainly one of 
the most respected and popular spir- 
itual groups in the country today and, 
fiom the look of things — our barom- 
eter being initial orders and airplay 
in test areas — this new Nighten- 
gale album is sure to be one of 1959’s 
biggest religious LP sellers.”

“TOO MUCH ROCKIN’” (2:00) 



[Cliff-Tone BMI — Mauro, Munnerlyn, Leonettil 
I GET WEAK’ (2:35) [Cliff-Tone BMI — Mauro, Munnerlyn, Leonetti] 

TINY LEWIS (Linda 1022) 

• The Memo-distributed Linda label could have its first big one in the 
wild “Too Much Rockin’.” Tiny Lewis romps contagiously through 
this violent handclapper backed by a crowd of voices and a wailing 
combo. Real frantic pleader. Don’t neglect the cute “I Get Weak” side 
which Lewis delivers with snappy appeal. Both have fine outlooks.

MUDDY WATERS 
(Chess 1739) 

‘‘TELL ME BABY” (2:15) [Leeds 
BMI — Broonzy] Impassioned 
blues wailing. Waters handles this 
Bill Broonzy-penned plea with respect 
and deep-rooted blues feeling. 

D, “RECIPE FOR LOVE” (2:35) 
® f [Arc BMI — Smothers] Another 
solidly belted blues. Waters has two 
solid chart threats. 


CHASE CANFIL 
(Dart 110) 

B “WOKE UP THIS MORNING” 
(2:15) [Glad, Big Bopper BMI — 
Canfil] Lively rocking blues opus is 
served up infectiously by Canfil, who 
has a pleasant vocal quality. 

P, “I HAD A DREAM” (2:22) 
**f [Glad, Big Bopper BMI — Canfil] 
Here Canfil carves out a soulful blues 
with convincing feeling. 


MEMPHIS SLIM 
(Vee-Jay 330) 


CHICK FOSTER/JOEY BELL 
(Rock 1000) 


B “NIGHT WALK” (2:10) [Ground 
Hog BMI — Hook, Foster] Chick 
Foster and his Night Walkers dem- 
onstrate sock musical ability as they 
turn in a hot swinging instrumental 
item. 


B “DON’T BE LATE” (2:30) 
[Leeds ASCAP — Hooks, Price] 
Vocalist Joey Bell enters here, backed 
by Foster’s group, and is heard on 
a quiet pleading romantic. 


ARNOLD WILEY 
(Ace 111) 


n , “SQUARES AIN’T WALKIN’ 
0+NO MORE” (2:15) [Kenco AS- 
CAP — Wiley] OK vocal reading of a 
mildly rocking “cool” deck. Musical 
backing is by top flight jazzmen, in- 
cluding Buster Bailey, Ralph Williams, 
and Johnny Letman. 

f 1 , “IT’LL BE A LONG TIME” 
wf (2:05) [Kenco ASCAP— Wiley] 
Here major portion of platter is given 
over to good instrumental sounds. 


EDNA GALLMON COOKE 
(Nashboro 652) (Religious) 



p , “MY GAL KEEPS ME CRY- 
O'TING” (2:39) [Conrad BMI— 
Frazier] Low down blues is essayed 
with solid conviction by the artist. 
Good southern territorial merchan- 
dise. 

B “STEPPIN’ OUT” (2:07) [Con- 
rad BMI — Frazier] Swinging 
instrumental here features wailing 
sax and guitar. 



handles this expression of deep faith 
with spirit and earthy passion. Her 
touching message is helped along by 
harmonic male voices. Strong disk 
for the market. 

p “IF YOU DON’T GO” (2:47) 
Of [Excellorec BMI — Cooke] The 
singer delves into another fine re- 
ligious theme at a similar medium 
pace.

p, “TAKE MY HAND” [Trianon 
Of BMI — Dupree] Good pro vocal 
group expression of a tender roman- 
tic plea. Teen appeal is wrapped up 
here. 

B “OH JOE JOE” [Trianon BMI— 
Centurys, Brown] More from the 
pleading school, this time a bright 
rocking rhythm session. 


P “THE LOVE OF GOD” [Venice 
BMI — Crume] A quiet, very slow 
paced hymn is a meaningful vehicle 
in the hands of soloist J. Cleveland. 

p “JESUS” [Martin-Morris BMI — 
. Goodson] Joyous handclapper is 
infectiously delivered by the mixed 
group. A true jubilation spirit is 
conveyed.

[Ross Jungnickel ASCAP — Crutch- (1:58) 

field, Dinning, Robertson] [Warden BMI — Driftwood] 

EDDY ARNOLD (RCA Victor 7619) 

9 Having- established a dual-mart sensation with “Tennessee Stud,” 
Eddy Arnold should continue his winning ways with “Did It Rain,” a 
beautiful ballad with a touching- message. Arnold gives it his tenderest 
best. “Siftin’ Bull” is a fast moving folk tale from the pen of Jimmy 
Driftwood, and completes a powerful two-sided, dual-mart.

“COUNTRY GIRL AT HEART” (2:28) [Starday BMI— Morgan] 
“TREATIN’ ME (THE WAY YOU DO)” (1:55) [Peer Int. BMI— Morgan] 
BILLIE MORGAN (Starday 464) 

$ As her “Life to Live” hit was her answer to “Life to Go,” “Country 
Girl At Heart” is Billie Morgan’s answer to Faron Young’s “Country 
Girl,” and could produce similar chart results. Tune’s a steady medium 
pacer with a warm feeling. Up-tempo humorous weeper, “Treatin’ Me,” 
is approached with comical lightness and can also happen. 


Q Look for big country clicks in the latest efforts by Johnny Cash, 
Bobby Lord, Rex Allen and Marijohn Wilkin (see pop reviews). 


DANNY ROSS 
(D 1096) 

n . “THE LAST TOWN I PAINTED” 
11+ (2:51) [Glad, Ross BMI — Word] 
Ross invests this country weeper with 
heartfelt sincerity. Fine reading of a 
standard theme. 

B “YOU FINALLY WALKED 
OUT” (2:25) [Glad, Ross BMI— 
Barber] Similar offering as on the 
upper end. 


OSCAR HART 
(Sage 306) 

« , “WELL NOW” (1:50) [Sage & 
B+ Sand SESAC-Hart, Pearl] Cute, 
infectious romancer is brightly essay- 
ed by Hart and a male chorus. The 
lively shuffle-beater has a bright teen 
outlook. 

B “GLAD I WAS BORN” (2:20) 
[Sage & Sand SESAC — Cavanna] 
Touching inspirational hymn is ten- 
derly caressed by the singer. 


LES WALDROP 
(Country Jubilee 523) 

f| . “THEY SAID IT COULDN’T BE 
O+D0NE” (1:43) [Ralph’s Radio 
Music BMI — Waldrop] The popular 
L&M commercial has supplied the 
theme for this amusing opus. Waldrop 
whips quickly through a happy-end- 
ing romance. Could stir attention. 

» , “THE WIFE OF A HARD 
U+WORKING MAN” (2:32) 
[Ralph’s Music BMI — Waldrop] 
Touching ballad testimonial to a 
group of dedicated women. Beautiful 
theme will be appreciated by many. 


DOTTIE MAE 
(Yale 101) 

n j “SUGAR DOLL” (2:19) [Clover 
BMI — Mae, Murman] Appealing 
love chant, set to a bright beat, is 
attractively and sweetly chirped by 
the gal. 

f*, “SOMETHIN’ WONDERFUL” 
V+ (2:06) [Clover BMI — Mae, Mur- 
man] Here Smokey Warren gets co- 
billing with Mae. The two duet on an- 
other happy set of love lyrics. 


BRAD REYNOLDS 
(Zero 102) 

H , “PRETTY POLLY” (2:54) [Tri- 
®+Life BMI — Grashey] Flavorful 
romantic ditty is cutely essayed by 
the singer, telling about his adorable 
gal. 

B “GEORGIE PORGIE” (2:32) 
[Tri-Life BMI — Grashey, Am- 
adeo] The old nursery rhyme turns 
up with new lyrics and a fresh ro- 
mantic appeal. 


VERNON STEWART 
(Blu-J 303) 

B “STAY IN MY ARMS AS YOU 
STAY IN MY HEART” (2:00) 
[Blue Ribbon ASCAP — Haywood 
McClung, Wellman, Mank] Stewart, 
a cleejay at KXJR-Russellville, Ark., 
offers a sweet testimonial to his love 
here, tenderly conveying a pretty 
romantic. 

f* , “ONCE TOO MANY TIMES” 
W * (2:00) [Blue Ribbon ASCAP— 
Morris, Mank] Stewart reads a plain- 
tive opus here. 


PHIL SULLIVAN 
(Starday 462) 

» “YOU GET A THRILL” (2:22) 
®+[Lonzo & Oscar BMI — Hodges, V; 
Morris] Sullivan should add to his 
growing reputation with his attrac- 
tive chanting of this shuffle-beat 
weeper. Combo and chorus offer per- 
fect accompaniment. Keep tabs on it. 

U “I COULD NEVER BE ALONE” 
D' (2:24) [Starday BMI — Sullivan] 
Sullivan completes this strong cou- 
pling with a gripping weeper that he 
renders with deep feeling. Two potent 
entries. 


REX BINGHAM 
(Rex 001) 

“BLIND BLIND HEART” (2:25) 
[Mixer BMI — May] Lilting tear- 
jerker is read with sincerity by Bing- 
ham. Femme chorus assists adequ- 
ately. £ j 

“WITHIN MY LONELY HEART” 
(2:08) [Mixer BMI — Bingham] 
Another unhappy theme, honestly de- 
livered, completes the deck. y

STERLING BLYTHE 


George N. Haxell, Co-editor of the ‘Country-Western Express,’ sends 
along the following items from Britain: “Country music received its biggest 
boost from any U.K. label when Capitol promoted a ‘Country Music Week’ 
(10/2-10/9). The promotion covered its own artists but will do much to popular- 
ize C&W music as a whole throughout Great Britain. . . . ‘Grand Ole Opry’ 
TV ^ films are causing such a stir being shown in the Wales area only that 
ITV is planning to run the entire series of 96 films over all channels, thereby 
covering most of Britain. . . . Melodise issuing good sides by Starday artists 
Frankie Miller, Bill Clifton and James Eanes. . . . Mercury doing the same 
with Jimmie Skinner and George Jones disks. Mercury also planning a C&W 
EP series titled ‘Country & Western Trail Blazers’. . . . RCA issuing many 
EP’s and singles, among which are sides by Hank Snow, Jim Reeves, Hawk- 
shaw Hawkins, the Browns (whose ‘Three Bells’ continues up the charts), Don 
Gibson, Johnnie & Jack, Homer & Jethro and Eddy Arnold. . . . Parlophone 
is providing a steady flow of country music via its ‘Country and Western’ 
PyP’s. Recent issues, culled from the U.S. King label, are by Grandpa Jones,

Income Producing Features 
In New Machines: 

MORE THAN MEETS 
THE EYE! 


Unlike the automobile industry, currently introducing 
the 1960 line, all with a deliberate and obvious change in 
design as compared with former models, the coin machine 
industry does not necessarily feel that a complete departure 
from former model design is of importance to the income- 
earning power of a new machine. 

In the first place, games manufacturers introduce as 
many as one dozen new machines each year. A radical 
change in the outward appearance of each machine would 
be prohibitive. Regardless, it is not necessary. However, 
each model does offer a new innovation, and many times 
this added feature is concealed in the “play” of the game, 
rather than in the cabinet design. 

We have joined the chorus of voices asking for new 
ideas, new gimmicks, original games, hut in editorializing 
on this subject we have considered the completely radical 
change a small part of the overall changes in new equip- 
ment necessary for greater income-earning power. After all, 
how many absolutely new, and never before released games 
can be invented? On the other hand, the area for changes 
when centered on the scoring, the play, and the general 
attraction of a new game, is still very broad. We believe 
manufacturers have researched this area with great gains. We 
refer to several new ideas that are currently being used in 
the overall mechanisms of new games that do not change to 
any extent the outward appearance of the machine, but play 
a tremendous part in the player appeal of the game, as com- 
pared with former models. 

We have received reports from distributors and oper- 
ators on a current innovation present in a particular game, 
now being used in a series of these games, that has capti- 
vated the locations to the point where collections have actu- 
ally tripled in some areas. 

Reason for this success is the added control a player has 
over a unit of the machine which enhances his enjoyment 
through added participation in playing the game. Simple? 
Yes. An eye-catcher in the physical design of the machine? 
Not necessarily. The attraction cannot be appreciated until 


the game is played. It is then, and only then, that the com- 
parison between this new game and former models, similar 
in design, can be appreciated. 

Another new idea, now' incorporated in a different make 
game, is the choice given a player between what is considered 
a conservative game and one in which the action is intensified 
in indirect proportion to the time element, which governs 
the amount of time a player may spend playing the machine, 
for the same expenditure. Again, reports from several dis- 
tributors have proven this added feature has given a shot-in- 
the arm to collections, with orders actually 35% above the 
previous model. Look alikes? Possibly yes, to the “window 
shopper” operator. Identical? Certainly not. A world of 
difference in the play . . . and in the collections. 

Manufacturers have succeeded in presenting time and 
time again, and particularly during this Fall season, new 
equipment that is different in many aspects. It is not neces- 
sary to identify these many manufacturers. That is not the 
purpose of this discussion. The point is, these same money- 
making features are presented on the advertising pages in 
this publication every week of the year. Distributor sales- 
men are hoarse from reiterating these same new innovations 
to operators, and scores of operators have reaped the harvest 
of profits from utilizing the new machines to the fullest 
extent. Unfortunately there are still operators awaiting the 
arrival of the “never-seen-before” piece of equipment. They 
are looking at cabinets. 

Getting back to our original comparison with the auto- 
mobile industry, perhaps the buyer today has been educated 
to view newness with an untrained eye. Perhaps operators 
are looking for the “fins on rear bumpers,” or the “wrap- 
around windshields” or possibly the “low-slung-wider-wlieel- 
base,” all radical changes in the outward appearance of a 
new model. Let’s look a little further. Let’s look “under 
the hood.” Examine the ingenious innovations in evidence 
on current model machines that are earning more money 
than previous models, but appearing much the same in out- 
ward physical design. Let’s make the most of the very best 
the manufacturers are offering.

“What You Should Know About

(continued on page 67) 


Can Be Incorporated Into Every Installation 


PASSAIC, N.J. — Mannie Ehrenfeld, 
Telmusic Service, Inc., this city, one 
of the industry’s pioneer juke box 
operators, and one of the shrewdest 
in the country, like all other coinmen 
has been asking the question “How 
can I increase my collections?” 

“The problems with which we have to 
contend are well known”, said Ehren- 
feld. “In the roadside and diner type 
location, which depends mostly on the 
wall boxes situated in the booths, there 
are these problems: 1) Youngsters 

take over the booths and stay there 
for hours listening to tb music 

selected by patrons in other booths. 
Not only does the proprietor complain 
about the small purchases of these 
youngsters and the fact that these 

booths are unavailable for other 

patrons — the juke box operator fails 
to realize income from the wall boxes; 

2) These youngsters play “beat” mu- 
sic, ‘horse around’ and make consider- 
able noise, thus chasing out business 
people who wish to discuss business 
matters during their lunch or dinner; 

3) The noise is so loud, waiters and 
counter people have to yell loudly to 
make their needs known, thus adding 
to the general condition of confusion. 

“In the tavern and restaurant loca- 
tion”, continued Mannie, “the most 
serious problem effecting the revenue 
of juke boxes and wall boxes is the 
Television set. As is well known, when 
a ball game or fight is in progress, 
the juke box must remain silent.” 

Ehrenfeld enthusiastically proclaims 
he has devised a system of providing- 
juke box music for those who wish 
it — and which at the same time over- 
comes all these prevailing problems — 
and most important, one which has 
increased his revenue more than five 
times. 

“This is not theory”, exaults Man- 
nie, “but is a proven fact, one which 
is now operating and bringing in this 
greatly added revenue. The Cash Box 
has always advocated that those in 
the coin machine industry try to think 
up new ideas for adding income. I 
believe I have come up with a tre- 
mendous idea for juke box operators. 
It is working for me, and without a 
question of doubt, should work for 
the rest of the nation’s juke box 
operators.” 

Ehrenfeld’s idea is simplicity in 
itself, and he states that any mechanic 
can handle the technical arrangements 
— and that the manufacturers and 
distributors can supply the necessary 
equipment. 

Thru Ehrenfeld’s new system, music 
is confined to only one booth — the 
booth in which the patron inserts a 
coin. No other booth can hear the 


patron in booth #1 inserts a quarter 
and selects three tunes, he hears those : i 
records. If a patron in booth #4 ,/ 

inserts a quarter for three tunes while fl f 
booth #1 is listening to his selections, 
the patron in booth #4 will also hear 1 | 
the balance of booth #l’s selections : 
— then his selections will come up, as 
it does now. However, until .Booth r 
#4 inserts his coin, he doesn’t know 
that anyone in any of the other booths 
has selected music. I 

“This system”, advised Ehrenfeld, , 
“makes it possible for the operator 
to pick up a great deal of additional 
play.” 

In addition, Mannie points out, 
should TV be turned on, and patrons p 
sitting in booths wish to enjoy juke 
box music, they can buy it without 
interferring with the patrons who | 
are listening to TV. 

Ehrenfeld tells us that the invest- 
ment in the necessary equipment to 
set up this system is comparatively i | 
small, and will return to the operator J 
in a very short space of time. “When 
a location grosses more than five I 
times the usual collection”, smiles 
Ehrenfeld, “he doesn’t object very 
much to investing a small sum.” 

Lew Jones To Visit 
European Coinmen j 

Tour Includes England, Belgium 


INDIANAPOLIS, IND. — Lew ; 
Jones, president. Lew Jones Distrib- 
uting Company, Wurlitzer distributors 1 
in this area, has advised that he will 
leave the United States on Sunday, i 
October 25, for a two week tour of 
Europe, to contact importers of coin- 
operated equipment. 

Jones’ schedule will include London, 
Antwerp, Brussels, Rotterdam and 
other countries in Europe, where he ' 
expects to contract for coin-operated j 
equipment orders from the firm’s 
regular export customers as well as : 
solicit business from other importers 
interested in the company’s line of 
equipment. 

“The coin machine importer in 
Europe can select from a complete f 
list of all types of coin equipment at 
what we consider the fairest prices,” 
stated Jones, “and as far as interested 


music being played. Neither can the 
music be heard on the floor or at the 
bar. Therefore, if any other patrons 
in other booths desire to hear a record, 
it is necessary that they insert a coin. 
Each booth has a separate speaker, 
and thru a system of relays the music 
shuts off when the last coin is used 
up. The volume is controlled so that 
it just provides the music for the one 
booth. Outside of this control, the 
boxes work the same as usual. If the 


firms that I do not have on my travel 
schedule, a wire or collect phone call v| 
to our offices in Indianapolis will be 
forwarded to me in Europe, in time - 
for me to include these firms on my |j 
visit.” 4 1 

Jones, in addition to distributing 
the Wurlitzer line in this area, re- 
cently expanded his territory to in- j il 
elude the Cincinnati area, formerly 
handled by the T&L Distributing Com- 
pany.

Michigan Sales Head 


WESTBURY, L. I.— Melville Rapp, 
director of sales, Continental Vending 
Machine Company, this city, has an- 
nounced the appointment of three ad- 
ditional sales representatives. 

Those named were Chester Merrill

onto, Canada.

NEW YORK— The Public Relations 
Committee of the New York State 
Coin Machine Association, Inc., met 
on Thursday evening, October 22, at 
the M.O.N.Y. offices, in this city, and 
during a three and one-half hour ses- 
sion, approved further plans for a 
drawing of prizes as a means of rais- 
ing funds; elected A1 “Senator” Bod- 
kin permanent chairman of the New 
York State committee; accepted ap- 
proved acknowledgements from al- 
most one dozen high city and state 
officials who will attend the 22nd An- 
nual Music Operators of New York 
banquet being held on November 7, 
proposed a regular bulletin mailing 
to be sent to every coinman in the 
State advising of the progress and 
goals of the committee; and estab- 
lished a definite policy of making the 
committee’s work a completely co- 
operative function to include the ef- 
forts of every coinman in New York 
State. 

The meeting was one of the most 
rewarding projects conducted under 
the chairmanship of A1 “Senator” 
Bodkin and reflected months of prob- 
ing and discussion on the part of the 
committee. 

After a reading of the minutes, a 
treasurer’s report, and reports from 
the legislative committee under the 
direction of Mrs. Amelia McCarthy, 
the discussion centered on the manner 
in which a drawing for prizes through 
the sale of tickets would he conducted. 
The committee approved a motion 
to proceed with the mechanics of the 
drawing under the committee of which 
Irving Holzman, A1 Simon and Meyer 
Parkoff are members. This program 
is subject to several possible mod- 
ifications. 

A1 Simon, in discussing the scope 
of duties of the various committees, 
made a motion that insures the co- 
operation of each and every coinman 
in the New York State area on mat- 
ters pertaining to the raising of funds 
and the official responsibilities as- 
sumed. “We cannot and will not 
achieve our final goal unless this proj- 
ect is a combined effort by every man 
in the coin machine industry in this 
State,” said Simon. “A brief period 
of success brought about through the 


efforts of a few will not result in any 
accomplishment several months from 
now. Coinmen in the State must be in- 
formed of the necessity for this pub- 
lic relations program and once they 
are informed they must be brought to 
bear the responsibilities of such a 
program. Until we get a completely 
cooperative attitude from everyone in 
the State we cannot make the progress 
we are here to make. I feel that every 
operator is capable and willing to join 
with us in strength and thereby make 
our work a thorough and lasting ac- 
complishment,” continued Simon. 

Meyer Parkoff reported on the 
Cardinal Spellman’s Servicemen’s 
Club, a local USO canteen project that 
has been supported by New York coin- 
men for several years. The committee 
agreed to embrace this project as a 
part of the State committee’s public 
relations program and in this event, 
mailings will be made to all coinmen 
in the State soliciting funds for the 
support of this cause. An agreement 
with officials of the Servicemen’s Club 
is expected to result in furthering the 
prime function of the committee. 
Parkoff and Bodkin advised that the 
Cardinal Spellman’s Servicemen’s 
Club agreed wholeheartedly to a pub- 
lic acceptance of donations to be con- 
ducted under the supervision of the 
PR committee. 

Nash Gordon reported receipt of 
$200.00 from the New York State Op- 
erators Guild and advised that the 
membership mark has passed 100 
members, to date. Latest distributor 
forwarding his membership check for 
$200.00 was John Bilotta, of Bilotta 
Enterprises in Newark, Albany and 
Syracuse, New York, who also attend- 
ed the meeting. 

Bodkin advised that the next meet- 
ing date would be announced in a 
mailing and through the trade press 
in several weeks. 

Those in attendance at the meeting 
were: A1 Bodkin, Nash Gordon, Meyer 
Parkoff, Tom Greco, Ameila Mc- 
Carthy, Carl Pavesi, Irving Holzman, 
John Bilotta, A1 Simon, George Holtz- 
man, Hy Jaffee, Ren Grevatt, Joe Or- 
leck and Marty Toohey.

Miller Urges Ops Attend ASCAP Meetings 



GEORGE A. MILLER 


Al Levine Joins Redd 


ALLSTON, MASS. — Sy Redd, 
Redd Distributing Company, this city, 
announced last week that Al Levine, 
former coin machine salesman with 
more than five years experience in 
the New England area, will handle 
sales for the firm in the six New 
England States territory. 

“The success we have had with Bal- 
ly’s ‘Heavy Hitter’ and ‘Batting Prac-

CHICAGO— George A. Miller, na- 
tional president and managing direc- 
tor of the Music Operators of Amer- 
ica, issued a statement last week urg- 
ing non-member operators, as well as 
members of the organization, to at- 
tend the scheduled board of director 
meetings, November 4, 5, and 6, at 
the Morrison Hotel, this city. 

He stressed the need for further 
discussion on the ASCAP bill pending- 
in Congress, and asserted the urgent 
need for unified action among all op- 
erators to defeat the bill. 

“We can not stress too strongly 
the need for action on the bill,” Mil- 
ler stated. “While the MO A board of 
directors and I will concern ourselves 
with the business of planning next 
year’s convention, we definitely feel 
that discussion on the ASCAP bill is 
uppermost in everyone’s mind. 

“We look forward to a large at- 
tendance at the meetings, and to see- 
ing all of our friends there,” conclud- 
ed Miller. 


this new game and inform the op- 
erators as to the reason for its suc- 
cess, we have asked Al Levine to 
handle sales in this area. Actually, 
Al spent the summer in another busi- 
ness not allied with the coin machine 
business, but we have been in close 
contact. Being a salesman with a 
sharp eye, Levine took note of the 
sales on Bally’s previous two swing- 
shot games, ‘Heavy Hitter’ and ‘Bat- 
ting Practice’ and decided that he 
would get on the road with the latest 
Bally game, ‘Targets’. 

“I feel that it’s most important 
that operators realize the reason for 
the success the latest Bally games 
have had, and this is due primarily 
to the swing-shot method of control- 
ling the ball, that we have heard so 
much about,” concluded Redd. 

Levine was expected to leave on a 
road trip early this -week.

M.O.N.Y. Annual Ticket Sales Brisk 


NEW YORK — Al Denver, president, 
Music Operators of New York, Inc., 
advised that ticket sales for the as- 
sociation’s annual affair, scheduled for 
Saturday, November 7, at the Com- 
modore Hotel, this city, indicate a 
larger crowd than any other previous 
banquet. 

Nash Gordon, secretary, stated that 
plans for a top flight entertainment 
program were just about complete 
with several recording artists, high 
on the popularity charts, already 
agreed to appearing at the show. 

“We have several surprises in store 
for the guests at our dinner, and 
rather than announce the program 
too early, I’ll just go on record as 
saying that everyone attending can 
be assured that at least two of the 
performers will be favorites of the 
approximately 1000 guests we expect 
to attend,” said Gordon. 


Attention, Associations 


NEW YORK — Secretaries of the 
nation’s coin machine associations 
are requested to supply meeting 
dates and other information re- 
garding time, place and dates of 
each regular meeting to The Cash 
Box, in order that this information 
be published in advance of the 
meetings. 


Gordon advised that early ticket 
reservations would guarantee good 
seating arrangements satisfactory to 
everyone. Special ticket requests must 


be made this week, as the 
only two weeks away.

the new Warner Bros, release, “Boy” and “Smile, Just Smile” by The Nortones. 
The group wrote “Boy” which is the theme song from the new Jack Webb pro- 
duced TV show, “Thirty,” and both sides of the record look very good. ... At 
Badger Sales, Gene Wasson, AMI Service Man, was in town to conduct service 
schools. Marshall Ames demonstrated the new Keeney popcorn machine over 
the week-end at a showing held in the Ambassador Hotel. Marshall also stated 
that the new and used Machines were moving well again. ... At Leuenhagen’s 
Record Bar April Stevens was in visiting the Solle sisters. Jeff Clark of Central

Harrie Kronenberg Dies 


WESTBURY, N.Y.— Harrie Kronen- 
berg, director of trade relations for 
Continental Vending Machine Co., 
died suddenly while attending the re- 
cent Texas Association of Tobacco 
Distributors Convention in Dallas, 
Texas. 

She was the first and only woman 
to serve as a Director of the National 
Automatic Merchandising Association. 

Mrs. Kronenberg was active in the 
vending industry for many years and 
had been with Continental since 1955. 
Formerly she served as a vice-presi- 
dent of Alamat Co. Inc., of Birming- 
ham, Ala., one of Continental’s vend- 
ing operations. 

She was the widow of Sidney 
Kronenberg, former owner of Alamat 
Co. and also a member of the Board 
of Directors of the NAM A, who died 
in March 1957 in the crash of a 
private airplane while on his way to 
the NATD show in Chicago. 

Herbert P. Wallach, Jr., Mrs. Kron- 
enberg’s brother, has been appointed 
sole executor of the estate. Other re- 
latives include: a daughter, Lynn, a 
son, Alan, and Mrs. Kronenberg’s 
mother. 


1 17 Different Cigarette Brands, Sizes 


BOSTON, MASS. — Lewis Gruber, 
chairman of P. Lorillard Company, 
told the Boston Conference on Dis- 
tribution that he predicts the cigarette 
industry will experience a mass 
“shake-out” sooner than anyone real- 
izes that will leave only five or six 
major brands in command of the mar- 
ket. 


Gruber said that there is now an 
“incredible” total of 117 different 
brands and cigarette sizes. More than 
twenty cigarette brands currently sell 
over a billion units a year, compared 
with three or four dominant brands 
25 years ago. “And we haven’t seen 
the end of new brands yet,” predicted 
Gruber. 



Dave Friedman Negotiating 
Music Makers Game Route Deal 


MIAMI MURMURS 


Mr. and Mrs. Bert Lane spent some time in Miami on a business-pleasure 
trip, stopping at the Fountainbleau Hotel, and had dinner with the Willie 
Blatts while in town. . . . Dave Friedman is reported to be negotiating to 
purchases Music Makers’ game route. If the deal is closed Friedman will 
become one of the largest novelty machine ops in the area. Dave’s son opened 
his own law office early this month and is said to be doing quite well. . . . Talk 
about easy living! Mr. and Mrs. Charlie Aronson and Mr. and Mrs. M illie Blatt 
enjoyed dinner at the Miami Springs Villas, to the accompaniment of one 
dozen violins. Art Bruns, who had just returned from Russia, showed the 
fellas how to live, Continental style! . . . Two Bar Mitzvahs were held early 
this month when Mr. and Mrs. “M'hitey” Pincus and Mr. and Mrs. Murray 
Blane held separate receptions and at different times, but with many coinmen 
attending both gala affairs. The Blanes migrated down here to Miami about 
fifteen years ago and evidently they love every minute of it. 


Dance Halls Become New Outlet 
For Coin Operated Music 

GREAT BRITAIN GLIMPSES 

The failure of many movie houses in Britain has caused many former 
cinemas to turn to the ballroom dance business with an increase in ballroom 
studios and halls causing new coin operated music machine locations to become 
more available. At the present time, one problem existing in the former 
theaters is sound-proofing, a necessary evil it seems, whenever a music 
machine is contemplated for installation in these giant halls. Reports from 
England have it that the juke box has infused a sense of rhythm into the 
teenage way of life that could stimulate the ballroom business. . . . John 
Singleton, secretary, Amusement Trades Exhibition, advises that progress 
is being rapidly made for the forthcoming show at the New Royal Horti- 
cultural Hall, on Feb. 2, 3 and 4, of next year. Also, the Second Automatic 
Vending Exhibition will be held at this same site, on Feb. 15, 16, 17 and 18. 
The vending show is conducted by Contemporary Exhibitions Ltd., 40 Gerrard 
St., Piccadilly, London, W/l. Space reservations are being accepted. . . . 
England is currently conducting a ticket-raffle, in conjunction with a public 
relations coin drive, with proceeds scheduled to go to children’s homes, 
orphanages, and hospitals. Lillian Shaw, secretary, Phonograph Operators’ 
Assoc., Ltd., advises that books are being mailed out for a drawing in mid- 
December. . . . Cyril Shack, Phonograph Equipment Co., Ltd., advises that a 
survey has indicated there are approximately 20,000 phonographs in Britain 
today. While most of the locations are of the smaller-collection category, 
most operators trade-up placing new stereo machines on top locations. Shack 
advised that “the greatest stimulus to our industry has been the lifting of 
restrictions allowing the current model phonographs to be brought into this 
country.”

reported last week that the organiza-

in the area, that the reason some of 
the operators decided not to join the 
group was their objection to some of 
the by-laws in the charter. 

“These problems concerning the by- 
laws were placed before the members 
at the general meeting, and thor- 
oughly discussed,” Hastings said. 

“However no decision has been 
reached as yet, and the matter was 
shelved until the next regular meet- 
ing, which will be held November 9 
at the Ambassador Hotel. 

“Actually,” Hastings continued, 
“there was a wide divergence of 
opinions, and we felt that the mem- 
bers should have approximately thirty 
days to think the matter of amending 
the by-laws over before we all reach 
a decision.” 

Officers of the Milwaukee Coin Ma- 
chine Association are Hastings, presi- 
dent; James Stecher, Novelty Service 
Company, vice-president; and Jerome 
“Red” Jacomet, Red’s Novelty Com- 
pany, secretary-treasurer. 

The board of directors includes 
Harry Jacobs, United Distributors, 
Incorporated; Arnold Jost, Arnold’s 
Amusement Company; Bob Puccio, 
P. & P. Distributing Company; and 
Vince Waters.

Strong Representation From N. Y. 
Coinmen As N.A.M.A. Chi Show Starts 

EASTERN FLASHES 


With only two weeks remaining before M.O.N.Y. stages its annual ban- 
quet and show at the Commodore, the pace has quickened at the local asso- 
ciation’s offices where A1 Denver, Nash Gordon and staff handle last minute 
special seating arrangements, entertainment, and the dozens of details that 
go into making this annual show the success it always is. M.O.N.Y. expects 
close to 1000 operators, guests and friends to attend the Nov. 7th affair and 
it sounds as if this will be the biggest affair ever. Nash Gordon asked all 
coinmen to speed ticket reservations in immediately, in order that everyone 
be seated at the tables of their choice. 

* * * * * 

The N.A.M.A. Convention, being held in Chicago this week, started Sat., 
Oct. 31st, and will run through Nov. 3, with many representatives from the 
N.Y.G. area at Navy Pier eyeing the vending exhibits and attending meetings 
at the Conrad Hilton Hotel. Distribs and ops along Tenth Avenue indicated 
a more than usual amount of interest in this year’s show.

A1 Rodstein, Banner Specialty Co., Philly, telephones from Philly that 
business at the new plant on Girard is moving ahead quite well. A1 relates 
that the United games line has enjoyed a good amount of action while plans 
for final completion of showroom display chores carry on. Rodstein will, of 
course, attend the N.A.M.A. Show and more than likely visit the coin plants 
while in Chi. . . . Garry Cohn, the late Nat’s son, tells us he was engaged 
to be married last week, to Marian Karasik. Marian is expected to graduate 
from Hofstra College in June, and then walk up-the-aisle to blissful marriage. 
Gary’s no slow-mover, either. Honeymoon plans are already set for the 
C’arribean! . . . Sam Morrison and Steve Tarzanin, Minute Moods Co., Bronx, 
N. Y., caused quite a stir on 57th St. last week, when the coinmen were 
stopped in their tracks by the local police for jaywalking! Sam comments 
that onlookers were crying out “Jayboids”, “Bad Boys” and other humorous 
remarks while the policeman filled out the official forms which entitle the 
boys to pay a jaywalking fine, and all this, states Sam, on the way to 
M.O.N.Y. in order that they pay their membership dues! “Seems this is the 
year operators are getting hit with every form of tax possible,” shouts Sam. 
Better walk the straight and narrow white line from now on fellas! . 
Myron Sugerman, Runyon Sales Co., writes from Europe that business has 
been vei'y good and that he expects to spend a good part of the remainder 
of his trip in England. Morris Rood advises that Bally equipment is moving 
better than ever with “Challenge” bowler and “Deluxe Club” howler setting 
the pace. “Targets” is expected to move fast, too, advises Morris, after the 
success of “Heavy Hitter” and “Batting Practice”. Irv “Kempy” Kempner took 
off for outside calls just before we arrived but he left word that AMI Model 
“J” sales are still holding up very well. Louis Wolberg hit the AMI promotion 
pool last week and won $5.00! The week before Rood won $15.00. To celebrate, 
Louis treated the entire staff to a delicious spread of danish, cake and other 
pastries with coffee and extras for everyone. A good time was had by all 
and the five dollar bill quickly disappeared. Barney “Shugy” Sugerman off to 
the piers to see an export customer off while another visitor from foreign 
shores stops by Tenth Avenue showrooms, Herbert Katz, of Southampton, 
England. . . . Mike Falcaro, Falcaro Music Co., continues to stir up a storm 
in bowling circles. Mike bowled a 2516 for twelve games and came in third 
during the N. J. State All-Star Eliminations. The tourney has about 250 
entries with play-offs resulting - in an eventual four top bowlers from the 
crop. Winners go to Omaha, Nebraska for national play-offs and top prizes. 
Mike is striving extra hard to make the trip and from past performances, in- 
cluding the number 3 placement, is almost packed to go. Mike bowled a 743 
only several weeks ago in another league just to keep in trime. Lots luck, 
Mike. . . . Mrs. Gertrude Browne, perennial visitor to Tenth Avenue, arrives 
on time as per usual shopping for supplies and equipment in order to keep 
the route in class “A” shape, also as per usual. . . . A1 Simon, Albert Simon, 
Inc., discusses the “Queen Bowler” market with ops, pointing out several 
advantageous type locations where the game is really perking interest. A1 
DTnzillo advises that ChiCoin’s “Playland Rifle Gallery” enjoyed some addi- 
tional business this past week, as did sales in general at Simon’s. . . . Irving 
Holzman, Black Sales Co., still shipping United’s “3-Way” Shuffles as fast 
as he can get ’em. Irv’s been spending quite a bit of time lately on the Public 
Relations Committee, heading the ticket-raffle program which was on the 
agenda at last week’s PR meeting. “Whitey” Druckman keeps things moving 
in the parts dept, as ops come and go, each one with a particular route problem. 

. . . Joe Munves, Mike Munves Corp., carrying on for the final week, solo, 
as Mike enjoys his third week of vacation in Hot Springs. “Arcades have had 
a really great year”, advised Joe, “and we can only look to more success 
next season.” . . . Nate Feinstein, Atlas Music Co., in Chicago, in town with 
his wife, taking in the Broadway show circuit. Nate and the Mrs. flew in from 
Pittsburgh after attending a huge class reunion. . . . Hank Peteet, Wurlitzer 
field representative spends some time in the Sandy Moore Dist. Co. show- 
rooms, after traveling to W. Va., Syracuse, and several other stops along 
the way. The Moore staff was saddened at news that Sandy’s father-in-law, 
Albert Machler, passed away on Tues., Oct. 20th. . . . Dave Lowy, MJL Oper- 
ating Co., tours coinrow in search of parts and supplies. . . . Just missed 
Harry Koeppel, Koeppel Dist. Co., as he left to meet Mrs. Koeppel at the air- 
port after an extended vacation with her daughter and son-in-law. Hymie 
keeps a steady pace re-conditioning equipment and making sales on used 
and new Rock-Ola’s while export business accounts for a steady business plus. 
. . . Meyer Parkoff, Atlantic N.Y. Corp., in conference with several ops 
when we call, while Murray Kaye happily reports that “diversification”, the 
byword at Seeburg distribs across the country, is really paying off.

Chicago A Mecca Of Coin 
Activities In November 

CHICAGO CHATTER 


The first week in November looms as a banner coinbiz activities week in 
Chicago, with the huge N.A.M.A. show in at Navy Pier and the Conrad Hilton 
Hotel October 31 thru November 3; and the annual Board of Directors meet- 
ing of the Music Operators of America, November 4, 5 and 6 at the Morrison 
Hotel. George A. Miller, president and executive director of MOA, strongly 
urges non-members, as well as regular members, to drop in at the 3-day 
session, and join in the ASCAP discussions. “When you boil it all down,” 
Miller said, “this House Bill concerns all operators. We 
should thrash it out thoroughly at these meetings for 
everyone’s sake.” 

MOA board members due in Chicago next week are; 

Clinton S. Pierce, A1 Denver, William Hullinger, Les Mon- 
tooth, Howard Ellis, Tom Withrow, James Tolisano, Larry 
Marvin, Willie Blatt, Louis Ptacek, Max Hurvich, Victor 
Ostergren, Norman Gefke, John A. Wallace, Pete Weyh, 

Ralph Ridgeway, Harlin Wingrave, James Hutzler, Ted 
Nickols, Lou Casola, Lloyd Cramer, Frank Fabiano, K. A. 

Cornney, Joe Lederman, Carl Pavesi, Ralph McMichael, 

Jake Friedman, C. G. Silla, Marvin Britz, Harry Snodgrass, 
and George A. Miller. . . . Everyone at Chicago Dynamic 
Industries is getting ready to greet the many visitors who 
are due in for the N.A.M.A. show shortly. Art Weinand 
tells us Sam Wolberg, Sam Gensburg, Ed Levin, Harry Glick, Avron Gens- 
burg and Mort Secore will be on hand to welcome visiting coinmen. . . . Atlas 
Music’s Eddie Ginsburg huddled with White Sox owner Bill Veeck discussing 
“baseball problems”. Now that Eddie is sponsor of the North Elm Little 
League he’s doing his utmost to keep up with baseball’s progress. Seriously, 
Eddie is all pepped up over helping Little League young- 
sters prepare for possible big league careers. Nat and 
Eva Feinstein are making the rounds in New York. They 
stopped off first at Pittsburgh where Nate attended a 
class reunion with his old high school classmates. 

Herb Oettinger and Bill DeSelm, United Manufactur- 
ing, are putting out the ol’ welcome mat for visiting coin- 
men during the N.A.M.A. show next week. Bill tells' us 
A1 Thoelke drove his car during his West Coast trek last 
week. The reason: A1 wants to see a great many operators 
during this tour, and he assured us the only way this 
could be possible is by car. . . . Roy Kraemer, United’s 
engineer chief, recently started an innovation in service 
school technique. The service course is illustrated with an 
assortment of 250 slides and a 65 page text and service 
manual. . . . While Sam Lewis made one of those fast business trips last 
week, Sam Stern, president of Williams Electronic Manufacturing, is minding 
the store. Sam info’s that the new “Club House” pinball amusement game 
is really keeping production and shipping at peak schedules. . . . Gil Kitt, 
owner of Empire Coin, and sales chief Joe Robbins, are keeping the long 
distance telephone lines busy trying to acquire the much needed game and 
music equipment for domestic and export orders. Joe is keeping his fingers 
crossed, hoping that the Chicago Bears eleven trounces 
the highly touted San Francisco Forty-Niners. Joe is high 
on Northwestern to whip Notre Dame. Actually Joe is 
such a Golf and fishing “bug,” that we often wonder what 
he’d do in Fall without his intense interest in Football. 

Fred Minter’s lovely wife, Jane, phoned to tell us 
Fred is currently on the road calling on the trade in 
Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee. Freddie is due back at 
his Gateway Cooperative Distrib offices some time this 
week. . . . Since Bill O’Donnell and Herb Jones were busy 
as blazes — as usual — Art Garvey took a few moments 
from his hectic schedule to inform us that everyone is 
raving about Bally’s new “Targets” high scoring amuse- 
ment game. The entire gang in the sales offices is getting 
ready for the multitude of visitors expected during the 
big vending show. . . . Bally Vending’s John Stewart advises that he, David 
Howie and Bob Briether will unveil Bally Vending’s new vending machine at 
the show. Right now the “wraps” are on it. John sez that the firm’s entire 
group will be in town for a series of meetings at the plant. . . . When con- 
struction started on the Gottlieb Memorial Hospital some months ago, Alvin 
Gottlieb thought that he, Nate Gottlieb and Dave Gottlieb would be able to 
spend less time on the huge program. However, the way things are turning 
out they’re spending more time watching “their baby” grow. Regarding D. 
Gottlieb & Company, Alvin reports that the new “Universe” game is receiv- 
ing terrific acceptance all over the country and overseas. A record production 
run is expected. 

We’re certain that all of their Friends are delighted that Roy McGinnis 
and his lovely wife are back home from their extensive journey through 
Europe. Roy, president of J. H. Keeney & Company, is back at his desk, 
and this makes Paul Huebsch happy, since it gives him 
a chance to relax a bit. Paul and Harold Dorgan are lining 
up Keeney’s array of vending machines for the upcoming 
N.A.M.A. convention, and they expect a lot of action. . . . 
First Coin’s Joe Kline showed us the heavy traffic in the 
showrooms, and expressed his satisfaction by stating 
that, all things considered, this is fast becoming the 
biggest Fall season First Coin has ever enjoyed. Sam 
Kolber and Fred Kline have been playing host to quite 
a few visitors from Europe, and Central and South Amer- 
ica of late. Meanwhile, Sam and Fred have been working 
hard at trying to line up a lot of much needed game 
and music equipment for export orders. . . . Regardless 
of how hard you “pump” A1 Warren and Zeke Wolf, 
Auto-Bell Novelty, for the facts on the super-duper 
promotional plan they’re still conceling, it’s impossible to budge them from 
their stony silence. However, A1 assures us the “cat will be out of the bag” 
sometime next week. With a devilish wink of an eye, he promises us it will 
be well worth waiting for. 

Clarence Schuyler, Games, Incorporated, tells us both “Wild Cat” and 
“Twin Wild Cat” electronic uprights are still enjoying record sales after 
these many months of steady production. . . . According to Ralph Sheffield,

Midway Manufacturing, the new “Joker Ball” game is proving a sensation 
everywhere it’s being distributed. The game has so many new features that 
it’s stimulating sales. . . . Estelle Bye whispers through her laryngitis to

since its exposure to foreign markets. Meanwhile she (coughingly) asks

action, in case anyone’s interested. . . . Vince Shay and Stan Levin inform 
us they will set up their N.A.M.A. headquarters at the LaSalle Hotel, and 
cordially extend an invitation to all of their friends to come up and visit 
with them during the convention. ... We extend our sincerest, belated con- 
gratulations to Donan Distrib’s Mac Brier and his lovely Roslyn, who cele- 
brated their 18th Wedding Anniversary last week. Mac and Donan prexy 
Don Moloney are doing handsprings over Bally’s new “Targets.” They claim

Wico Corp. Intros New Speaker- 
Baffle Line “Miracle Sound” 


Gabrielson Completes 
4-Month Vend Program 



ED RUBER 


CHICAGO — Ed Ruber, sales man- 
ager of Wico Corporation, this city, 
announced last week that Wico’s new 
combination baffle and speaker line, 
“Miracle Sound’’, is currently being 
introduced all over the world. 

“We made a world wide mailing' of 
the new ‘Miracle Sound’ brochures,” 
Ruber said, “and already received 
immediate orders and excellent accept- 
ance for the line. 

“ ‘Miracle Sound’ baffles and speak- 
ers are, of course, available for stereo 
and monaural reproduction,” continued 
Ruber. 

According to Ruber, the new Wico 
baffle and speaker models feature 
unique styling and design in three 
popular shapes; the sloping corner, 
Standard Wall model, and De Luxe 
Wall model. All are 8 inch speakers 
and baffles. 


They are produced in 2 color com- 
binations, in blond and mahogany 
finish. The grill cloth is made of 
durable, washable plastic, in contrast- 
ing colors. 

Ruber stated that one of the most 
important features is the fact that 
all of the speakers and baffles in the 
“Miracle Sound” line are in all metal 
cabinets, with an easy-to-clean baked 
enamel finish, completely lined with 
a special fiberglass for best possible 
acoustic qualities. The Quam speaker, 
which is built to produce from 15 to 
15,000 cycle response, has a 10 ounce 
magnet. 

There is a 10 watt-70.7 volt con- 
stant duty transformer available at 
a low additional cost. The speakers 
are sold in matched pairs, at very 
reasonable prices, according to Ruber. 

“Wico’s ‘Miracle, Sound’ baffles, and 
speakers are already being as widely 
accepted all over the country and 
abroad, as is the sensational Wico 
stereo conversion kit line,” Ruber said 
in conclusion. “We are very pleased 
that the country is becoming so stereo 
minded, and we certainly look forward 
to a big year in 1960 with our com- 
plete stereo line of products.” 


Gary Cohn Engaged 


NEW YORK — Gary Cohn, son of 
the late Nat Cohn, announced his 
engagement last week to Marian 
Karasik. 

Gary advises that plans call for 
a June wedding when Miss Kara- 
sik graduates from Hofstra Col- 
lege. The couple will honeymoon 
in the Caribbean. 


ATLANTA, GA. — G. K. Gabrielson, 
Gabrielson & Company head, local 
Seeburg distributors for this city; 
Columbia, South Carolina; and Char- 
lotte, North Carolina; reported excel- 
lent reception from vending machine 
operators on the Seeburg vending line 
in these areas, after a four month 
intensive sales program conducted in 
conjunction with the introduction of 
the Seeburg coffee and cold drink 
vending machines. 

“After four months on the road, 
both Dave Parker and myself are 
convinced that we have a vending line 
that rates top consideration by vend- 
ing operators in our areas,” stated 
Gabrielson. “The response to our 
showings and installations have proven 
that ‘diversification’, a word we have 
used quite -frequently hereabouts, is 
certainly the way in which to progress 
in this day and age. I feel that See- 
burg has helped distributors in the 
present day market, by manufacturing 
equipment that will be an addition to, 
rather than a replacement of, stand- 
ard equipment. Our music machines 
and cigarette machines are selling 
very well. Parker has carried the 
brunt of the sales effort on the vend- 
ing lines and we are most optimistic 
about its future.” 

Gabrielson advised that both he and 
Dave Parker would visit the National 
Automatic Merchandising Association 
Convention in Chicago on October 31st 
in order to study the complete vend- 
ing picture, after which sales pro- 
grams will be resumed on the Seeburg 
line of coin operated equipment.

THIS WEEK’S USED MACHINE QUOTATIONS 


How To Use “The Cash Box Price Lists” 


FOREWORD: Many times, wide differences appear in the quotation of high 
and low prices of certain equipment. Like any true reporter “The Cash Box 
Price Lists” can only feature the market prices as they are quoted. “The Cash 
Box Price Lists” act exactly the same as the market quotation board at the Stock 
Exchange — posting the prices as they are quoted for the past week, regardless of 
how much they may seem to be out of line. Some prices do not change for 
months. “The Cash Box Price Lists,” rather than show no price, retain the last 
known quotations for such equipment so that the subscriber at least has the 
last known prices as a basis to work with. Prices may be very widely divergent. 
Someone on the West Coast may feel a certain machine worth $150.00 whereas 
someone on the East Coast may think it worth but $75.00. Of course, serial, 
appearance, demand, territory, quantity, and condition of equipment must be 
taken into consideration. (Some equipment offered by outstanding firms, having 
a reputation for shipping completely reconditioned machines, will be offered 
at higher prices than others, due to the added cost of reconditioning.) “The 
Cash Box Price Lists” reports each quotation exactly as it is made and depends 
on the subscriber to make average price adjustments to fit the peculiarities of 
his territory. 


METHOD: “The Cash Box Price Lists” should be read as follows: First 
price listed is lowest price quoted for the week; Second price listed is highest 
price quoted.

IMPORTANT NOTICE 


The Letter Ruling of the Internal Revenue Service, addressed to Mid-West 
Distributing Company and dated March 4, 1959, relative to the tax 
category of certain pinball-games, received considerable publicity from 
numerous sources, including the trade-press of the industry. 

We protested such Ruling and contended that— in classifying such 
games according to features of construction, instead of use— such Ruling 
went far beyond the scope of the Korpan Case, decided in June, 1957 in 
favor of the Government. 

Nevertheless, Revenue Ruling 59-294 was issued on September 8, 
1959, affirming the ''Mid-West" Ruling and holding that "where a pinball 
machine is equipped with a push button or other device for releasing free 
plays and a meter for registering the plays so released, or with a provision 
for multiple coin insertion for increasing the odds, such equipment is 
considered prima facie evidence that the machine is being maintained for 
gambling purposes." 

Such "prima facie" Ruling is now being contested in court. 

Our opinion and the opinion of our counsel has been that our 
games, LOTTA-FUN and FUN-WAY, do not fall within such Rulings. 
Flowever, we now learn that new Letter Rulings have been issued by the 
Internal Revenue Service which might be construed to apply Revenue 
Ruling 59-294 to any and all multiple coin features. 

We have requested a definite Ruling from the Internal Revenue 
Service on the tax category of LOTTA-FUN and FUN-WAY. 

Pending such Ruling, however-or a determination in court— we feel 
an obligation to our customers and to the industry to disclose the tax 
uncertainty presently existing.
